Century-old temples demolished in Tamil Nadu

Coimbatore(Tamil Nadu, India): The Local administration in Coimbatore on Tuesday demolished seven temples that were built around 100 years ago. 

Pusaripalayam Kumaraswamy colony’s Arulmigu Shri Angalaamman Mandir along with 7 other temples in Coimbatore has been flatted by the local administration. 

The administration has demolished Amman Kovil, Bannari Amman Kovil, Angala Parameswari, Karupparayan Kovil, Muneeswaran Kovil, and a few other temples on the northern bund of the tank citing that the land has been taken up for rejuvenation and development under the Smart Cities Mission.

The demolition was protested by around 250 people but later removed by the heavy police deployments. 

Many Hindus from the area had raised this issue on social media alleging that how the government could demolish century-old Hindu temples in the name of development. 

However, the local administration denied speaking on the incident when questioned by the Neo Politico.
