As we think #FreeHinduTemples is not just the issue. The Temple Problems are Multi Level & Multi Fold. Mainly the way they are preserved, renovated & cared.

The step motherly treatment of Hindu Temples can be felt from the photos Shared here. 1. These 1000 yrs old Ashapuri Temples built by Pratiharas & Paramars are yet to be renovated.

Image

2. The mutilated Murtis from this temple complex lie in utterly neglected state in a small compound few Kms away. Look at the condition of Murtis @wiavastukala

Image

3. The heliodorus Pillar Complex is the one of the oldest recorded proof of Vishnu Worship & His Temple. This is the condition it is in. Are we Hindus ready to proudly reclaim this?. Imagine the places like Gobekli Tepe & how they are cared by western societies.

Image

4. One of the Grandest temple in Madhya Bharath – Vijaya Mandal is yet to see its day, this is just the Base of temple. Imagine in its fullest. Cant we do anything about it?

Image

5. Look of the front view of Viajaya Mandal temple (Locally known as Bijamandal Mosque). This is all that we could have. This is the Grandest temple of Madhya Bharath.

Image

6. The elements are waiting eagerly for decades in the campus to be added to the temple, which may not happen any soon.

Image

7. Vidisha museum hoards some of the best Master pieces of Hindu Murtis. Some in Dark rooms, Some in the open, thrown carelessly, once these Murtis were worshipped with utmost divinity.

Image

8. Athkhambi (8 Pilllared Mandapa) Temple near Vidisha is the only left over part of the 1000 Year old Grand Shiva Temple. Today it is Encroached & is suffocating. Unless searched, this would never be visible to passersby.

Image

9. Though enough elements are present to resurrect the Vishnu Temple of Hindola Toran Complex, they lie as is for centuries.

Image

10. Maladevi Temple collapsed from inside. In the generation of “Inter-Planetary Travels”, our experts are not able to renovate the temple and restore the lost glory. They only say “Only God Can Solve the Maladevi Puzzle”. Seriously?

Image

11. Have a look at how Bajramath (Vajramath) Temple is. Compare it with the restoration works of buildings around the Delhi.

Image

12. One of the best preserved Temples in Madhya Bharath, even after multiple attacks, is the Udaipur, Udayeswar Temple. Accessing this temple by road is next to impossible. Encroached, Congested & Neglected.

Image

13. Pathari Jain Temples are so delicate that, they may fall any time due to Stone Quarry work going on Just 100 Kms away. Even after repeated complaints, there is no response – You can understand who is involved in the Quarry work.

Image

14. Gadarmal Temple is as is the day it was ransacked. nothing has changed.

Image

15. One of the Parivara shrine of Shrine of Gadarmal Looks like this. what do you think, for how many days this is gonna be like this? Will they ever become complete and its God sits Inside?

Image

16. One of the Oldest Complex of Vishnu with Largest Varaha Murti in the World is in shambles. They are still without proper over head cover. Is there any rule/law that only if ancient elements are found only then the temple would be resurrected? otherwise will be left to god?

Image

17. Pancha Pandava Complex of Mahabalipuram itself is the greatest example of how, our temples have become tourist spots. The Visitors in the complex have zero regard for what’s built in granite some 1500 yrs ago by pallavas. With shoes they climb wherever they wish.

Image

18. The Controversial Siddhpur Rudra Mahalaya is yet to see its Dawn. Why?

Image

19. While the tombs are preserved using foreign technology and the process is done with utmost care and documentation teaching to students, the Bishnupur Temples are Smiling at us.

Image

20. One of the worst renovation till date is this Harshat Mata Temple of Abhaneri. The magnificent “MahaMeru Shikhara is adjusted to an Ugly Dome.

Image

21. What are we waiting for? Waiting to see its total fall so that we are relieved that one structure is less to be preserved. Kakanmath Temple, Gwalior.

Image

22. Around 100 Temples are rebuilt and 100 more are to be resurrected. its been a decade, the scaffhold is rusting but the Batesar will never be complete mark my words.

Image

23. The Tirtankaras of Deogarh are yet to see their shrines.

Image

24. Do you see the lumps on the Shikhara of Dasavatara Temple, Deogarh? one of the earliest exmaples of Nagara Shikahara from Gupta Era cannot be restored?

Image

25. At every stone of Meenal Temple, you can shred a tear. It may take another century to solve this Stone Puzzle.

Image
Image

26. The status of temple on the other side of Meenal Waterfalls need not be said. It is Abandoned.

Image

27. What is this Mandapika Shrine is doing in Gujri Mahal of Gwalior? when will its womb be filled with its God?

Image

28. Do we Hindus have the power to keep this Amalaka back in its place on the Shikara of Nareswar Temple near Gwalior? or is our technology efficient enough to do so or not?

Image

29. The Great Swayambhu Shiva Temple of Kakatiyas. You should roll on the ground crying with happiness for the excellent restoration that’s done. Isn’t it?

Image

30. Who is to be blamed? Who is responsible for this utter carelessness of Hindu Heritage? Why are we not able to proudly reclaim what’s ours? @ReclaimTemples

This is just a small glimpse. Twitter is not enough to explain the suffering our temples are going through.

HISTORY.
8 April 1950 a fateful pact signed betn Jawaharlal Nehru & Liaquat Ali Khan,PM of Pakistan. After 2 months of Govt-engineered pogrom,slaughter, rape of Hindus in East Pakistan. Estimated 50,000 Hindus killed. An instance of incredible political stupidity on Nehru’s part.

Upon Liaquat’s glib assurance that Hindu refugees would be taken back and restored,the gullible Nehru decided that no rehabilitation of Hindus was necessary in India. Result: no refugee went back and were forced to live under inhuman conditions in Indian camps.

The Pakis were so insincere about the pact that their Govt issued secret instructions not to restore any Hindu to his property. Even after the pact all Hindu passengers in down Assam Mail were pulled down and killed just outside Santahar station.

The two Bengali ministers…
