Temple RobbedThe temple coming under Renjala, Irvattur, Miyaru, Mudaru and Nallur villages is under the supervision of government. Once in three months, the cash box is emptied by the temple officials. The collection approximately goes upto Rs 1.5 lakhs it is said.

The locals and police suspect that an insider might have been involved in the theft because, while the cash from the offering box has been stolen, other valuables like gold and silver have remained untouched.
