The State government has given its approval to Sri Arunachaleswarar temple administration for the construction of a modern multi-storeyed marriage hall here at a cost of Rs. 7.5 crore.

Temple executive officer and joint commissioner P. Dhanapal said that the hall would be constructed on a piece of land belonging to TPS Charities on Vettavalam Road bypass . The building would have a lift and a reverse osmosis plant to purify drinking water. The government's permission was sought for the construction because of the huge expense, he said.
