    Our Temples symbolize India's hallowed culture and sanatana dharma. Temples, which are the repositories of sculpture, paintings, music, literature, dance and other art forms, are built for the prosperity and well-being of all people. According to sastras, God manifests Himself in the images and fulfils the desires of the devotees on account of the spiritual penance of the great sages who consecrated the deities in the temples and the regular rituals performed there and due to the enchanting beauty of the idols, which conform to the silpa agamas. It is the bounden duty and responsibility of every Indian to preserve these temples, which are the centers of vedic culture, to renovate any dilapidated portion of the temples or rebuild them. It may be the vimana or prakara, balipeetha or dwajasthambha or it may be even the main idol. It is said natural disasters like flood and drought may occur not only in the villages where such ruined temples are located but also in the entire country.
