Plying of vehicles through Srirangam Rajagopuram banned

CHENNAI: Banning of vehicular movement through the Rajagopuram of the Sri Ranganathaswami Temple at Srirangam is among the decisions taken by the official authorities on Saturday as part of the measures to protect the structure. Bursting of crackers and lighting fireworks around the Rajagopuram and the temple will also not be permitted.

It was decided that these and other measures would be implemented within a fortnight. A technical team which surveyed the Rajagopuram on June 21 had submitted a preliminary report stating that the structure was safe and its stability was good and there need be no fear about safety.

Following this, a meeting was held by Chief Secretary K.S.Sripathi on Friday. Plugging small cracks using a mixture other than cement and epoxy, not permitting new construction, pile foundation or borewell within 40 metres from the temple and removal of encroachments around the temple were the other measures. Yet another decision was to study the base of the Rajagopuram using the Non-Penetration Radar jointly with the IIT, according to an official press release.

Pathway in Srirangam soon

Image

TIRUCHI: Construction of a sheltered pathway and laying of stone pavements inside the Srirangam Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple would be completed soon.

The Temple Trust has taken up the project to erect the sheltered pathway and stone pavements from the Thousand Pillar Mandapam to Udayavar Sannidhi inside the temple complex at an estimated cost of Rs.14 lakh.

Devotees, particularly senior citizens, find it difficult to traverse this open stretch especially during summer as they to walk over hot sand. The erection of the sheltered pathway would greatly benefit devotees.

The pathway is being provided with a polycarbonate sheet roof, said C.Jayaram, Joint Commissioner of the temple. While the work on erecting the sheltered pathway has already been completed, work on laying pavement stones was still underway.

A stretch of cement concrete flooring is being replaced with stones and already the work has been completed for a stretch of about 300 metres.

Mr.Jayaraman said the stones that were removed from the by-lanes, where the Tiruchi Corporation was laying concrete roads, were purchased for the purpose.

The stones were being cut into size to suit the requirements inside the temple complex.

Mr.Jayaraman also disclosed that work on building a rest house, sanctioned at a cost of Rs.21 lakh, at the Maduraiveeran grounds has been completed but for getting the underground drainage connection. A staff quarters, sanctioned at a cost of Rs.43 lakh, was also being built in the town.

With the State government already announcing that a sound and light show would be introduced in the temple, the authorities were in the process of identifying a suitable site for the purpose. The department is expected to call for tenders inviting private parties to produce the show.

ஸ்ரீரங்கம் ராஜகோபுர விரிசலை நவீன முறையில் சீரமைக்க திட்டம்

ஸ்ரீரங்கம் ரெங்கநாதர் கோவிலின் 236 அடி உயர ராஜகோபுரத்தில் பல இடங்களில் விரிசல்கள் ஏற்பட்டு உள்ளன. 1992-ல் ஏற்பட்டிருந்த விரிசல் நாளடைவில் விரிவடைந்து விட்டது.

இது ஆபத்தை ஏற்படுத்தும் முன்பு அரசு நடவடிக்கை எடுக்க வேண்டும் என திருச்சி அமிர்தம் சமூக அறக்கட்டளை நிர்வாகி வக்கீல் சித்ரா விஜயகுமார் அரசுக்கு கோரிக்கை விடுத்தார்.

இதைத் தொடர்ந்து நேற்று ஸ்ரீரங்கம் ரெங்கராதர் கோபுர விரிசலை இந்து சமய அறநிலைத்துறை தலைமை ஸ்தபதி, முத்தையா, தலைமை கண்காணிப்பு பொறியாளர் முத்துசாமி திருப்பணிகள் இணை ஆணையர் ஹரிபிரியா, ஐ.ஐ.டி. கூட்டமைப்பு பொறியியல் பேராசிரியர்கள், மெகா பிரசாத் அருண்பிரசாத், மற்றும் தொல்பொருள்துறை அதிகாரிகள் கொண்ட குழு பார்வையிட்டு ஆய்வு செய்தனர்.

புதிய கட்டுமான கோபுரத்தில் எவ்வித விரிசலோ பாதிப்போ இல்லை. அதன்பிறகு கோபுரத்தின் கீழ் பகுதியில் உள்ள விரிசல் மற்றும் ஆக்கிரமிப்புகளை குழுவினர் பார்வையிட்டனர்.

அதன்பிறகு தலைமை ஸ்தபதி முத்தையா கூறியதாவது:-

ஸ்ரீரங்கம் கோபுரம் முதலில் 22 அடி மொட்டை கல் கோபுரமாக இருந்தது. அதன் மீது பல லட்சம் டன் எடை உள்ள ராஜகோபுரம் கட்டப்பட்டு உள்ளது. சகதியில் வைக்கப்பட்ட ஒரு செங்கல் போன்று கோபுரத்தின் மைய பகுதியில் எடை அனைத்தையும் தாங்கி கொண்டிருக்கிறது. அதனால் பிதுக்கம் ஏற்பட்டு விரிசல் ஏற்பட்டு உள்ளது. பயப்படும் அளவு விரிசல் இல்லை.

காளகஸ்தி கோபுரம் மையப்பகுதியில் விரிசல் ஏற்பட்டதால் இடிந்தது. இது பக்கவாட்டு விரிசல் என்பதால் பயப்பட தேவையில்லை.

கோபுர விரிசலை சரி செய்ய நவீன தொழில் நுட்பம் பயன்படுத்தப்பட உள்ளது. கோவிலை சுற்றி 30 அடி வரை உள்ள ஆக்கிரமிப்பு கட்டிடங்கள் இடிக்கப்பட்டு அகற்றப்படும்.

இவ்வாறு ஸ்தபதி முத்தையா கூறினார்.

இந்த ஆய்வு குழு 15 நாளில் அரசுக்கு அறிக்கை சமர்பிக்கும் என்று கூறப்படுகிறது. அதன் பிறகு 6 மாதத்தில் ஆக்கிரமிப்பு கட்டிடங்கள் அகற்றப்பட்டு கோபுரம் சரிசெய்யும் பணி தொடங்கும்.

விரிசல் விழுந்த கோபுரம் கிரவுட்டிங் அல்லது “கெனடிங்” என்ற அதிநவீன முறையில் சரிசெய்யப்படும். ஒரு இடத்தில் துளையிட்டு அதில் சிமெண்டு மணல் கலந்து கலவையை அதிவேக அழுத்தத்தில் செலுத்தும் போது விரிசல்களில் சிமெண்டு கலவை சென்று அடைப்பட்டு விடும்.

இதற்கிடையே ஸ்ரீரங்கம் கோபுர விரிசல் தொடர்பாக உடனடி ஆய்வு மேற்கொண்டு நடவடிக்கை எடுக்க அரசுக்கு இப்பிரச்சினையை எழுப்பிய வக்கீல் சித்ரா விஜயகுமார் அரசுக்கு பாராட்டு தெரிவித்து உள்ளார்.

Experts study Srirangam Rajagopuram cracks

Muthaiah Stapathy along with experts inspecting the crack on the wall of Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple Rajagopuram in Srirangam on Monday.

The expert team which conducted a study on the cracks at the bottom part of the Rajagopuram of Srirangam Sri Ranganathaswamy temple here on Monday will submit a report to the Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments (HR and CE) Department in 15 days. Apart from conservation of the heritage Rajagopuram, the study will focus on other aspects including clearing of encroachments in the vicinity of the Rajagopuram, said P.K. Thiagarajan, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the temple.

No threat

Addressing presspersons at the end of the inspection, Mr. Thiagarajan said the cracks posed no threat and there was no need for panic among any quarters. The 10-member team, comprising experts in structural engineering from various institutions and the Sthapathy cum Advisor to HR and CE Department, Mr. Muthaiah, conducted an intensive study on every tier of the Rajagopuram up to its 13th tier besides a few private residential-cum-commercial complex in its vicinity.

He said the study would throw light on the ways of strengthening the soundness of the structure at least for one century ahead. Various components would be worked out such as plastering the cracks or replacing the entire stone-block with fresh ones, if needed. In either case, it would be a panic-free exercise. The team's recommendations would be carried out from the temple's own funds, he said.

A. Megher Prasad, Professor of Structural Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Chennai, said a few old data about the cracks at various places were available. At its sitting in Chennai, the team would carefully analyse all the details and recommend measures for the conservation of this heritage structure.

Mr. Muthaiah said that prior to the construction of the 'Rajagopuram', only a stone structure was in place for about four centuries. The construction of the massive structure (Rajagopuram) within a few years atop the stone that remained free from structural load for centuries had resulted in a few cracks. There was no need for any panic at any cost, he added.

M. Muthusamy, Superintending Engineer, HR and CE Department, said that steps would also be taken to keep the vicinity of the Rajagopuram free from any sound pollution or water stagnation.

The team comprised scientist and experts including Arun Prasad, Assistant Professor, Structural Engineering Department, IIT, Chennai; K. Nagamani, Anna University, Chennai; B.H. Barath Kumar from the Research Centre, CSIR Campus, Taramani; T. Sekar, Director, National Highways Research Station; R. Swaminathan, Senior Conservator, Department of Archaeology; G. Saravanan from Archaeological Survey of India and S. Haripriya, Joint Commissioner, HR and CE, Chennai.



YA IT'S TIME TO PREVENT THE FUTURE OCCURENCES. DEMOLISH THE NEARBY BUILDINGS IS A GOOD MOVE TO SAVE THE RAJAGOPURAM. EVENTHOUGH MY HOUSE IS ALSO VERY NEAR THE RAJAGOPURAM ONLY
