HC Commissioner reports against Aranmula airport

published on January 10, 2014
The construction of the airport at Aranmula will be a perennial threat to Aranmula Sree Parthasarathi Temple, according to a report filed by the Advocate Commissioner in the Kerala High Court.
According to the report the indiscriminate reclamation of the paddy land and the blocking of the tributary of the Pampa would endanger valuable plant species and fishes in the area. This will lead to flood in the river and its adjoining areas, affecting the smooth functioning of Aranmula temple.
 The commissioner pointed out that the Airport Authority of India suggested razing of four hills around the temple.. The razing of the hills might hurt the age-old faith of thousands of devotees of the temple.The proposal of the Authority for lighting the golden mast of the temple might be against the tantric stipulations.
Noise pollution might be caused due to the positioning of an international airport in close proximity. It may also interfere with several ancient customary and religious rituals.
