These ancient temples - abodes of gods were built in the days of yore by mighty emperors, ruling princes, amatya sekharas, Navakotinarayanas. Dharma Pravaktas, feudatory chiefs tribal heads for the sole purpose of spreading Bhakti cult among the masses and classes both. As the motive behind such august enterprise being lofty and ennobling. it earned an ever lasting name to the builders, besides reaping divine grace. The practice is given a fresh lease of life from time to time. In every Yuga too. Hence the presence of countless temples throughout the length and breadth of Akhanda Bharata Khanda. In modern times too though the western impact robbed much of our ageless spiritual treasure humanism and theism are installing the representations of that Absolute Power in shrines of new models and diverse patterns infusing into them modern spirit and western trends. In this century a class of new builders have stepped into the arena and started building temples to spread bhakti and spiritualize the core of decadent human nature due to ill digestion of several cultures into which man is thrown by force of circumstances.
