Why is the Hindu temple so expensive?

An image of a temple in Tamil Nadu has gone viral on social media.

The image shows the temple in its original location in the state capital, Chennai.

It was created by local artist Rakesh Mehta who said the temple was the inspiration for his project.

He said the original plan was to create a temple with a central hall and a courtyard.

“In the original idea, the temple had a central area with a large central courtyard.

I thought it would be interesting to create the temple with two different levels,” he said.

But as the project progressed, he realised that the original temple design was no longer feasible.

“The courtyard was too small.

I realized that if I was to have a central courtyard, I would have to have to do the temple construction in two parts,” he told NDTV.
