Temple reassembled near KRS Dam
The temple that had been submerged in the Krishna Raja Sagara Reservoir has been reassembled on the shore. The parts of the temple were numbered and photographed before being removed part by part. Using heavy machinery these parts were moved to the shore when the reservoir was empty.
The stone was cleaned and polished before assembling it into the temple. However, many new parts had to be added to replace the won out pieces. It was like putting back the pieces of a jig-saw puzzle.
The temple is now nearly complete. The temple can be reached by passing through the village. The temple has been reconstructed on a peninsula. The god or goddess is yet to be placed within the temple.
