have you seen a very clean temple in india meeting the standards of ISKCONor Birla group, both using white marble stones .some jain temples of gujarat also belong to this category

Renovation of the srirangam temple is on now. The committee has taken the decision to remove marble and other types of stones used over a period and restore old/traditional granite slabs during renovation.

The Ayyappan temple near Trichy court complex is also frequented by lots of people, but it remains the same now as 20 years ago. Noone speaks onc you enter the temple Srirangam temple also IMO is clean compared to other temples.

I have not seen a Hindu temple that is not clean. The approach and the access roads are filthy, but the temple itself is clean. The birla Mandir or Iskcon temple is better maintained as they have more money. Every Balaji temple is clean for the same reason. Money Talks.

People and children in particular do talk, but that is our culture.

We have a lot of dilapidated Temple, particularly Shiva Temples. We should try to restore them. My wife's family renovated and supports a temple in their ancestral place. It is Shiva Temple, and it is now thriving. Fortunately the town is expanding in that direction, and new devotees are frequenting the temple.

"mukhara" means talkative, loquacious, garrulous, noisy, making any continuous or tedious sound (said of birds and bees and tinkling ornaments); sounding, resonant or resounding with. "mukharaya" originates from this and means make noisy or resonant. These two words are not connected AFAIK with mukharati, although the first three letters are the same.

Mukharati may mean "speaking" as you derive, but many sources I have read do not think so. The dictionary (Monier Williams) does not give this word.

If you have more info. pl. share.


Dear Sangom ji,

Vaman Apte Dictionary has given the meaning of Mukhrata as Garrulous.

It is also seen in some Shiva Mantras as meaning garrulous for example as below:
Mantra-VI

Sanskrit wording:English wording:
Dharoovam Kashchit sarvam sakalamparastavdhoooravmidam paro Dhroyayadhroyae jagti gadti vayastvishae, samasteapatesamin purmadhan Tavarsamit ev, satuvan givihami tavam na khalo nanoo Dharishta mukhrata.


O Destroyer of Pura, some say that the whole universe is eternal, while others say that all is transitory. Yet others maintain that all these are eternal and non-eternal–having different characteristics. Bewildered, as it were, by them I do not feel ashamed to praise Thee. Indeed this garrulity indicates my audacity.



In fact when I searched online...Mukharati is also a surname of some North Indians.
