The Madurai Corporation has informed the Madras high court’s Madurai bench that it earmarked 469 buildings that were erected violating the government order dated Jan 30, 1997 prohibiting construction of buildings above nine metres in height within radius of one km from the compound wall of the Sri Meenakshi Sundareswarar temple.

The corporation counsel also said that on March 3 it issued notices asking them to produce building approval in a week. It further said that it would not stop with issuance of notice and would proceed further.

The court directed the corporation to inform it about further developments over the issue on March 14.

When the case came up for hearing, the petitioner’s counsel said that the court gave many directions regarding safety of the temple, of which except banning cell phones inside the temple, the Hindu religious and Charitable Endowment (HR&CE) department did do nothing.

It did not take steps to purchase advance fire safety equipment or take action to stop building violations near the temple.
