Mangaluru, Oct 14: Amidst incessant rains for past few days, the barrier wall of the historical Sri Karinjeshwara Temple at Bantwal taluk has collapsed.
The damage was noticed by the temple staff on the morning of Wednesday, October 14.
The courtyard adjoining the wall was used to feed monkeys after daily prayer to the god.
“The temple is located on a huge rock and has a history of almost four Century. The bottom of the collapsed area is stone and mound hence no damage was done to the temple,” the temple administrator Noonya Naik said on Wednesday.
He further stated that remedial action will be taken after structural review by a specialist.
