BHADRACHALAM : A sculpture fell from the Rajagopuram, located at the northern entrance, which is called the Vaikuntha Dwaram, of the Sri Sita Ramachandraswamy temple in Bhadrachalam on Saturday early morning. It created sense of alarm and panicky situation among the devotees as many consider this as misfortune incident.According to information from the local priests, while temple staff and priests were getting ready to open temple for darshan, suddenly they found a stone engraved with some letters falling off from the Rajagopuram. 


Immediately, security staff and temple staff were alerted. However, the temple officials kept the incident as secret. “The important thing is that at the time of the mishap, no one was passing through the Rajagopuram. Thus, major mishap was averted as temple was not open to devotees at that time. Generally, devotees are allowed into temple through Rajagopuram,” an official commented.Temple executive officer Prabhakar Srinivas said it was very unfortunate incident. A major mishap was averted as fortunately at that time darshan was not begun, he added. 


According to the officer, the Devasthanam was taking steps to restore the fallen part of the Rajagopuram after consulting Ved pandits. “Till the Rajagopuram is restored properly, we will allow devotees through Chitrakuta mandapam into the temple premises,” he added.
