PMK founder S Ramadoss, on Friday, condemned the temple management of Chidambaram Natarajar temple for giving permission to conduct marriage in a grandiose manner in the 1,000-pillar mandapam of the temple. “The hall in Chidambaram Natarajar Temple is a sacred spot where only select functions related to temple would be held. But, for the first time by overcoming tradition, a marriage was conducted which has disturbed the chastity of the temple,” said Ramadoss, in a statement, who also questioned whether the temple management is trying to commercialise the space. The marriage function was held in a grand manner by making elaborate arrangements in the temple and the arrangements had irked the devotees. “It is a clear case of violation of temple rules and it shows that money has won over the tradition and purity of the temple. The marriage is also a classic example for mismanagement and shows that the temple is in wrong hands,” said Ramadoss, who also demanded the government to take over the administration of the temple. He further said that though the temple management has given explanation that the arrangements were made for the Natyanjali function there are proof that the arrangements were made by the industrialists. So the government should initiate inquiry on the temple management for giving permission to conduct the marriage.
