Temple protection Movement in AP

via HINDU DEVALAYA PARIRAKSHANA SAMITI published on July 19, 2009


    We all know that temples are the fountain-head of Bharateeya Culture and spiritual values. Protection and development of Temples and the surroundings has been an established tradition of our country.
Over a period of time, Temples have become a treasure-hunt for the officers, incharge of the Temples. The basic object is defeated. Temple lands and properties have been sold out and encroached. Most of the Temples are left to perish. Nearly 28,000 temples in various places are in a bad shape requiring renovation. Even daily rituals are not performed in these Temples.
Sri Kamal Kumara Swamy ji has dedicated his life to the noble cause of Protecting Temples and Temple properties. To rejenuvate the traditional Bharateeya Culture it is necessary to get the Temples back to their glory. Sri Kamal Kumar Swamiji has established Hindu Devalaya Parirakshana Samithi – a full time organization working on every aspect of TEMPLES such as Protesting Temple Lands auctioning, Encroachments, Temple demolitions, Conversions and propagation of other religions in Hindu Temples and many more.
