Tamilnadu temples seek ISO approval
Chennai: A number of temples and religious bodies in Tamilnadu are applying for the International Standard Organization's (ISO) certification. This step has been initiated by the state government's Hindu religious and charitable endowments (HR&CE) department; report P Vinod Kumar and Kavitha Venkatraman of The Financial Express.

Three popular temples - the Kapaleeshwarar Temple in Mylapore, Parthasarathy Temple in Triplicane and Dhandayudhapani Temple in Vadapalani- have sought and received the ISO 9001:2008 certification. The ISO officials checked for the fixed assets of the temples, their accounts and 'strict adherence to rituals'.

"The HR&CE department in Tamil Nadu is a pioneer in administration and management of temples. The department had issued a directive to the temple management to apply for the certification and we did so a year or so ago. Subsequently, the ISO officials made three-four visits and gave the certification for administration and management after the temple fulfilled all stipulated norms", said a Kapaleeshwarar temple official.

Other temples will also join the queue of ISO's stamp of approval. Most likely among them are Meenakshi Amman temple in Madurai and Sri Ranganathaswamy temple in Srirangam.
