The Periyasamy – Chelliyamman Temple and the Sengamalayar Temple located in Siruvachur has been attacked and vandalized for the third time in just a span of a month.

Madurakaliamman temple is a famous temple located at Siruvachchur in Perambalur district. The Goddess is said to be the family deity of Kanchi Sankaracharya .

The Periyasamy – Chelliyamman Temple and the Sengamalayar Temple are associated temples of the Madurakaliamman temple and fall under the control of Hindu Religious & Charitable Endowments Department.

Earlier on October 7, many of the idols at the Periyasamy – Chelliyamman Temple and the Sengamalayar Temple including that of Amman, Maduraiveeran, the Saptakannis, etc were found displaced and broken by miscreants.

The temple was found vandalized inflicting far more serious damage with idols of horses, Goddess Amman, and other Gods found broken. Many of the idols had their heads cut off which indicates that the act has been done to deliberately hurt the Hindus.

In this third attack, that has happened on November 8-9, other huge idols have been smashed to smithereens.

Earlier, on October 27, the Hindu Munnani plunged into action and staged a road roko against the administration’s apathy. A crowdfunding campaign was also launched to repair the damages at the temple.

CCTV cameras were installed by the temple administration a few days ago

Many Hindu activists have been questioning the Hindu Religious & Charitable Endowments (HR&CE) department and its minister P. Sekar Babu for their silence and inaction on the matter.
