Sri TN Ramesh is the name that will be remembered by Chidambaram dikshitars for generations for his selfless fight to save Chidambaram temple from the clutches of HR&CE department. It is not not just that temple – Ramesh has been relentlessly fighting to protect several temples in TN from all the wrong-doers. It isn’t an easy task to do. Although he is a lawyer by himself, taking up this risky task to fight against the muscle power is something unique. It is clear that he is blessed by Parameswaran Himself to wage such war – without that winning Chidambaram case wouldn’t have been easier. I remember him explaining to few of us those tense moments in the Supreme Court and particularly the divine play of using one specific clause/word during the discussion that turned the whole case down and made it in favor of dikshitars. He mentioned that he saw Parameswaran right at that moment in the courtroom. Thanks to Hindu for a nice coverage. Until I read this article, I did not know that HR&CE attempted to take over Ayodhya mandapam too…
We pray Kanchi Acharyas to bless him with all the health, courage and support needed to carry out this fight until the end goal is achieved.
Our sincere thanks to his service and our humble namaskaram to this great man!
Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara!

It is four years since the landmark judgment was passed in favour of Pothu Dikshithars of the Chidambaram Sabanayakar temple. The man behind the case has been a crusader for the preservation of heritage structures, especially temples. T.N. Ramesh has taken on the HR & CE Department in several temples and on several issues across Tamil Nadu. A promise he gave Sri Dayananda Saraswati a month before his passing that he would dedicate his life to the protection of Hindu temples and architecture gives him the strength. [Click here for more….]
