    Dear Friend,

    Most Probably, No entrance fee is collected in the temples of Tamil nadu. In some special days, like some festival seasons, There will be huge crowed to make a visit to the temples during the festival days and some other occasions. During that days, In order to control the crowed, The authorities of the temple will collect some minimum amount as entrance fee. The collected amount will be used for the maintenance of the temple.

    So whatever the amount you spent there. It will be user for the temple maintenance. so, please don't worry and leave it.

    With regards,

    Hi Parames,
    Very sorry to hear a such thing from you about your Tamil Nadu's visit. As you said, the fees is not a must one in many of the temples of Tamil Nadu. As Mr. Manoharan said, the fact may be real. Don't have a bad decision over the Tamil Nadu Temples. The money you spend to visit Tamil Nadu from malaysia will not affect you much when compared with the fees collected in Temples. Be sure to visit Tamil Nadu and comment your visit in Tamil Spider. Sure the next visit will bring you happiness.

    with regards,

    Collecting fee for visiting temple is an undesired activity which is to be stopped at once. I have seen some temple collecting huge amount as VIP darshan but there is a separate line for normal devotees on free of cost. Such type of activity will definitely lean the Hindu religion. I can't support such illogical activity. God never asks money from anyone who are visiting his portico.

    Hello mam,
    Recently I visited Kodaikanal. There they are collecting fees at each and every spot. I am frequent visitor to kodaikanal I have not paid before. I think they are collecting fees everywhere in Tamilnadu just to improve the eco system or the maintenance. Now every where money speaks.
