There are as many as 2,07,000 temples in Karnataka & the total income of these temples amounts to 72 crores. Out of this, only a sum of 6 crores are being spent by the Government for their upkeep. On the other hand, the Govt. spend a phenomenal amount of Rs 50 crores for the madrassas & Rs 10 crores for the churches (from Govt. funds) In a period of 5 years 50,000 temples will be closed for the want of funds. --Sri Sri Ravishankar
Temples in India are under Government control. Only 18% of revenue generated is said to be given back for temple purposes, while remaining 82% is used for other purposes by Govt. at their discretion, by massive sale of temple lands, demolitions, lootings, encroachments occurring all over AP, Kerala, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, etc. As a community it is our duty to protect temples to save our religion, culture, arts and traditions.
What are the funds used for?
Funds are used for awareness campaigns and legal expenses. Several illegal sales of temple lands were challenged in High Court and put on hold. Kamal Kumar Swami of GHHF walked several miles in 3 series of Pada Yatras visiting temples in several villages bringing awareness to more than a million people. GHHF supports our sister organization Devalaya Parirakshana Samithi in an effort to save temples in India.
