aagama-s and temple construction

Sri.S.Parthasarathy in his post observes that many
temples being newly built in present-day India do not
conform to the rules of aagamA.

This is true to some extent.

Sir, just as an interesting aside (and not in defense
of taking license with the aagama), I ask you if you
knew that many aagama experts say that the main idol
("moolavar") of Lord Venkateshwara ("svayambhu")
defies all aagamic canons?!
