This refers to a report from Kumbakonam, Tamil Nadu, titled “1000-year-old Chola era temple facing threat of demolition” (May 17). During the construction of the Aswan dam, monuments like the Sphinx were removed and installed in a safer place. India must use equipment and technology to solve the problem of widening the highway yet preserve the temple.
