According to news agency ANI, it cost approximately Rs 4 lakh to cover the interiors of the temple from wall to wall. We're not sure if the money is real. Every year on Tamil New Year, the temple is decorated with currency notes.
A video by news agency ANI showed devotees walking through alleys lined with rupee notes. A Ganesha idol mounted on top of a pedestal covered with currency notes and a delicately ornate chandelier made out of Rs 200 and old Rs 50 notes were also on display. Column, pillars - all made of money - made for an unusual sight as people came to pray.
