This temple, built in 1891,faces the possibility of being demolished
There are 3 "Arasamaram" trees , which are more than 140 years old.
Sime UEP had sold the land to another developer One City Developer, who also wants to shift the temple but the devotees and committee feels that since they have been here for more than 120 years, its our right to stay here. Since this is a place of worship think we should stay at this present site and not move away"
There appears another good reason why this temple should be preserved. There are a few sacred Bo trees in the temple compound which are more than a century old.
Nagaraju has this to say,
"If you see the tree at the back, it is more than 125 yrs old they did a research through the forestry department confirmed that it is more than 125 yrs old in 1991, so now it is 145 years old. There are a total of 3 trees which have been certified
The developers are willing to compensate any price, but the devotees want to stay because of the history."
