We have received bids for the site work. The contract was awarded to Sickles Corporation site preparation started on June 5, 2021. The site preparation work entails leveling the Rajagopuram – Granite Temple Site and creating water channels for the runoff water. Temporary ponds will be dug in the surrounding area to create catches.
We have also put out a tender to receive bids for the next phase of the construction, the foundation work. To save money in the long term and have more functional space in the larger temple basement, the Rajagopuram construction team is considering completing the foundation and local construction of both Phase 1 – Ganapathi and Phase 2 – Subrahmanya at the same time. If this plan proceeds, the western side of the final Temple will be constructed together. The decision will be made based on the bids, cost, and timelines.
