Theft at Mannargudy Temple

There was a surprising element to the cruel theft at Thayar Sannadhi of
Mannarugudy Rajagopala swamy Temple.  The bhattachar on duty was murdered
and the thieves vanished with the jewels.  However, they had hidden the
jewels right in the lands that belonged to Thayar.  Police did find them and
handed them over to the temple.  There was no major loss of jewels but the
more precious life of a Bhattachar.  The above incident took place when I
was a resident of Mannargudy.
I just thought would post this info in response to a recent posting on this
