Devotees and volunteers reconstruct the destroyed Brindavana of Vyasaraja Swami in less than two days

Yesterday, BJP MP from south Bangalore Tejasvi Surya had also raised the issue in Parliament. He had demanded that miscreants must be arrested immediately.

The 16th-century Brindavana of Saint Vyasaraja Swamy, Rajaguru of Vijayanagara Emperor Krishnadevaraya, was reconstructed by local devotees and volunteers just 32 hours after it was found desecrated and vandalised by unidentified miscreants.

Devotees had discovered about the incident after they had visited the site for performing rituals on Thursday morning, a day after the lunar eclipse.

After the Brindavana was reconstructed, due rituals were conducted by the Swamijis of the Madhwa Sect.

Social media users informed that volunteers who took part in the re-construction celebrated after their work was done. More than 5000 volunteers from various places took part in the reconstruction activity under the supervision of several saints and scholars. They worked amidst constant mantra chants at the site.

Yesterday, BJP MP from south Bangalore Tejasvi Surya had also raised the issue in Parliament. He had demanded that miscreants must be arrested immediately. He had also argued for the need to have extra security measures such as the installation of CCTV cameras.

The Brindavana is located at Anegundi near Hampi, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is one among nine Brindavanas at the Nava Brindavana, located on an island in the Tungabhadra River comprises Brindavans of nine Hindu Madhva saints.

This was the second time that a site in Hampi was vandalised. In February 2019, a video had gone viral on social media showing three men wrecking the pillars of 14th century Vishnu temple.

Later, the four accused reportedly admitted their guilt and were subsequently released after they remitted ₹2.8 lakhs in fine and assured to re-erect the pillars in the presence of Archaeological Survey of India officials, the Hampi police inspector, and other officials.
