As per ancient Tamil Proverb, we should not stay in the place where temples are not built. This proverb stresses the significance of temples which has to be built all over the world. Ancient kings were built thousands of temples as per the orders of the almighty.
Gods and goddesses would appear in the dreams of the kings and queens and would command them to build temples for them. In return for that, their kingdom would prosper and all the people living in the kingdom would live peacefully and happily.
But nowadays some other religious people are planning to build their own temples in front of our temples, and they are also commenting badly about our ancient temple structure. They didn’t know about the greatness of our temples, and the painstaking efforts taken by our ancient sculptors and kings.
Building temples is not an easiest task. It takes lot of time, energy and money. Several millions of years back, the great child devotees like Markandeya, Prahalada and Dhruva have also built temples for Lord Vishnu, and as a result they have attained enlightenment and they have also reached the upper divine worlds.
All over India, several millions of small and big temples are there. But in some states, the temples look in a dilapidated condition, and the priests who perform pujas are also paid very lower salary, and as a result, they are unable to perform the Pujas even for one time in a day.
It is the duties of all the Hindus to come forward together and to help to renovate the dilapidated Hindu temples, in order to make it to attain its original position.In general, if we suffer from any mental worries, we would say to our family members, “come let us go to some faraway temples and stay for some days”. Temples not only provides peace of mind, but also acts as a great entertainment place, where we can view the beautiful sculptures carved by our ancient sculptors.
