3,000 Temples Being Built In This State To Propagate Hindu Faith

Amaravati: One of Odisha’s neighbouring states is taking pro-active steps to protect and propagate Hindu faith.

The Andhra Pradesh government is taking up construction of around 3,000 temples to ensure that there are shrines in every district of the state.

The initiative has been undertaken on chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy’s direction, deputy CM Kottu Satyanarayana said.

“To protect and propagate the Hindu faith on a massive scale, construction of Hindu temples in the localities of weaker sections has been initiated,” said Satyanaraya, who is also the state’s Endowments minister.

Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams’ Sri Vani Trust has allocated Rs 10 lakh for the construction of each temple.

While construction of 1,330 temples has been cleared, 1,465 more have been added to the list. Some legislators have requested for an additional 200 temples.

Voluntary organisations will chip with funding to complete the targeted number of temples, the minister informed.
