While the Municipal Corporation claims that both temples are on encroached land, the temple committees are of the opinion that land was allotted to them and they will not allow demolition of the two temples. An autonomous body, Travancore Dewaswom Board, which manages over 1,200 temples in the state, plans to set it up.

 

A vedic university, giving thrust to the studies of ancient traditions of spirituality especially Veda and Tantra, is likely to come up in Kerala soon.

 

The Travancore Dewaswom Board, which manages a number of shrines in south Kerala, is actively considering a plan to set up a vedic university with an aim to give the younger generation a platform to study the country’s rich spiritual tradition and heritage.

 

explore various aspects of the project, Board officials here said.

 

A top official said though the main focus of the proposed university would be the studies of Veda and Tantra, there would also be ordinary subjects and courses like in any other general university.

 

“We are planning the university on the model of foreign varsities like Oxford. Though it had been set up as a theological university, Oxford now offers a variety of courses on various subjects,” Dewaswom Commissioner P Venugopal said.

 

“The proposed Vedic University is also planned on that model. Students can study any science or humanities subject
there but its focus will be the spiritual studies,” he said. Discussions were also going on whether the university should be a central varsity or a deemed university, he said.

 

“Three locations are under our consideration to set up the university. They are Sasthamkotta, Valiyasala and Nilackal. But we are yet to take a final decision in this regard,” the official added.
