A group of artisans are busy working at the temple campus now. They have to dust, restore and paint the dozens of vahanams for the festival.
We are told that these are traditional artisans.
But Bhaskar Krish, in a comment posted on the Mylapore Times FB page says the artisans must keep in mind that restoration of the vanhams must not affect the originality of these religious images. "Nowadays they paint with multiple colors and the heritage look is lost…', he adds.
What is your opinion on restoration at temples?
