CHENNAI: The High Court has placed a ban on the construction of a commercial complex so that the Tiruvannamalai Arunachaleswarar Temple Rajagopuram cannot be worshipped.

Tiruvannamalai Arunachaleswarar Temple, 1,000 years old. A new two-storey commercial complex is being constructed in the area adjacent to the 11-foot earthworks opposite the East Rajagopuram of the temple.

As ‘Gopura Darshanam, Kodi Puniyam’, devotees are worshiping this Rajagopuram from far away, which can be seen up to a distance of 20 km. Opposite the Rajagopuram, the existing shops will be demolished and a 6,500 square feet, 151 shops, up to 40 feet high apartment building is being constructed.

If the entire commercial complex is completed, the front of the tower will be hidden and devotees will not be able to see the Raja Gopuram. The temple administration has not released any details in this regard.

An appeal was filed in the Madras High Court against the construction work. The judges, who investigated this, banned the construction of a commercial complex in front of the Rajagopuram.
The judges ordered that no work should be carried out as the restraining order will come into effect from the moment the order is issued.
