According to The Hindu report, “The authorities have chalked out a comprehensive plan for renovating the ceiling of the stone structures at the Maavilakku mandapam where paintings of flowers and decorative designs adorn the walls. Work on the construction of the “rajagopuram” had been completed on the western and southern sides of the temple.”
The Gopuram surrounds the temple’s three sides and the authorities say that the eastern side might take a longer time to get furnished. However, they stress that it will be made enough to perform the Kumbabhishekam.
