    RIGHT BEGINNING: Sarvananda Sarswathi Swamiji of Sri Bharathi Peetha of New Delhi launching the renovation of the Uma Maheshwara temple at Hosagunda in Sagar taluk of Shimoga district.



    SHIMOGA: Renovation of the 12th Uma Maheshwara temple at Hosagunda in Sagar taluk started on Thursday.

    The Sri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara Dharmothan Trust is taking it up. Sarvananda Sarswathi Swamiji of Sri Bharathi Peetha of New Delhi lauded the initiative taken by the local people for the renovation of the temple, which he said, was historically important.

    Raghaveshwara Bharathi of the Sri Ramachandrapur Math, Mallikarjun Murugharajendra Math of Bekkinakalmath and Mahanta Deshi Kendra Swamiji of the Male Hiremath of Togarsi appreciated the initiative taken by the Sri Uma Maheshwara Seva Trust in the renovation of the temple.

    Raghaveshwara Bharathi Swamiji and Mallikarjun Murugharajendra Swamiji handed over a copy of the agreement and a pair of bricks to the vice-president of the Sri Dharmasthala Manjnatheshwara Educational Institutions D. Surendra Kumar for starting the work.

    Na. D’Souza, Kannada author, expressed his happiness over the decision to renovate it in the Chalukya-Kadamba architectural style. Ananth Hegde Ashishar, convenor of the Vruksha Laksha Andolana, an environmental organisation, recalled the efforts by environmental activists in protecting the 800-acre Devara Kaadu in and around the temple.

    A. Sundara, archaeologist, said that the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) had been conserving over 5,000 monuments in the country and the State Department of Archaeology and Museums was conserving over 800 monuments in the State. However, there were many more historical monuments, which need to be protected. “But this can not be done by the Government alone. Religious institutions should extend their assistance,” he said.

    Details of plan

    C.M. Narayana Sastry, trustee of the Sri Uma Maheshwara Seva Trust gave details about the proposed renovation plan of the main temple and other temples located in its vicinity.

    It has proposed to take up the work at a cost of Rs. 11 crore, he said.
