MADURAI: Temple tanks belonging to some of the most ancient temples in Kanyakumari district, including that of the famous five-acre Suseendram tank, are all set to get an image makeover. The Nagercoil chapter of the Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH) has taken the initiative to get the tanks cleaned through the process of bioremediation.
Speaking to this newspaper, Dr R S Lal Mohan, convenor of the Nagercoil chapter of INTACH said that their organisation had recently conducted a study to review the condition of temple tanks in the region. They found that the tanks of the Parvathipuram Venu Gopalaswamy temple, Krishnankoil teppakulam, Kasi Viswanathar temple, Thazhuviya Mahadevar temple, Azhagammankoil teppakulam were highly contaminated.
