2. Sri Ram Temple

Note to visitors :
Please do maintain the sanctity of Murti and the place. Donate generously. Hindu Temples get absolutely no support from Govt. However, they must pay a share of income to govt as tax! In India, there is only two Temple which is not bound to do this - one in Rajasthan and another one in Telangana. Rest all Temples pay tax as they come under govt control. This rule is applicable only on Hindu Temples and not to other religions in India.
Karikallu Thotti renovation to be completed in three months
The HH Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wadiyar (SDNR) Foundation has taken up renovation of Karikallu Thotti in Mysore Palace and the works will be completed in three months, said President of the Foundation Pramoda Devi Wadiyar.
Addressing a press conference at Palace premises here this morning, she said “As the structure is very old, the renovation work will be carried out stage by stage at a slow pace. We have consulted heritage experts in this regard and will be using the same kind of materials that has been used to construct this heritage structure.” “Over the last 8 to 10 years, this unique structure has been in very bad shape due to its long-time exposure to rains and sunlight. We are trying to conserve this structure like Jayachamarajendra Art Gallery in Jaganmohan Palace premises. We have also urged the Government to handover the maintenance of Mysore Palace to SDNR Foundation,” Pramoda Devi said.
