Prevent great Damages being done in the Renovations of Historic Temples of Tamil Nadu

The granite Temples of Tamil Nadu are being ruined by the "Trustees, and Managing Bodies of these Temples" - They with intensions of renovating these Temples have applied 'modern paints' both on the granite Interior and Exterior of the Temples and on the granite portions of the Gopurams, without allowing them to have their "serene granite appearence", thereby they completely loosing their Artistic & Aesthetic value of Sculprtues and Surfaces. This type of painting areas of the Temples are also ruining the 'Epigraphical value" of the Inscriptions on the Walls and Pillars and in other areas of these Temples. In the process of renovations, stone slabs with Inscriptions should be preserved in their actual locations and not replaced with new even if they are cracked - but be repaired, without replacing them with new granite slabs. Also the cleaning of the structure of these Temples with modern "Sand blasting method" and the other "renovations of the Historic Temples too should be done only under the supervision of expert Archeological Officers" to prevent the defacing of the valuable Inscriptions on them which throws much light on the Tamilian History of Tamil Nadu, and also the beauty and sharpness of the "Beautiful Sculptures" and the valuable "Ancient Paintings" in these Temples. Contracts for Renovations of Temples should not be given for 'unscrulpus Contractors who doesnot have any Artistic & Historic sense of appreciation of these Temples and value them".
