India’s Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said on Saturday that necessary approvals are secured from the Sri Lankan government and Indian government for the construction of goddess Sita's temple at Divurumpola, in Sri Lanka, a place believed to be associated with Ramayana, the PTI reported.

“We have received the permission from the Sri Lankan government in this regard and the Centre has also given its approval,” Chouhan said.

Addressing an event in Madhya Pradesh, the Chief Minister also said, “The temple will be constructed through Swami Dayanand Trust.”

The chief minister had mooted the project in September 2012 when Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa visited Sanchi to inaugurate the University of Buddhist-Indic Studies. Chouhan had offered to fund the project, sanctioning Rs 1 crore.

The temple is proposed to come up at Divurumpola, near Nuwara-Eliya, a place where goddess Sita underwent 'Agni Pariksha' (test by fire), according to mythological epic Ramayana.

    HOW ABOUT MAKING IT HOLY LAND WHERE NO OTHER STATUES OR TEMPLES CAN BE BUILT?

    Naz Sunday, 02 June 2013 05:09 AM

    Bring in more Hindu Fanatics, Racist RSS and BJP from India to incite more hatred in this country. I do not mind if Sri Lankans are building it, but what is the use of this temple except for Indians.

    citizen Sunday, 02 June 2013 04:59 AM

    building temple is good, but i should be a need of sri lankan tamil rather not a want of indian government

    Sampath Sunday, 02 June 2013 04:23 AM

    This is all what we need now !!

    Critic Roshan Sunday, 02 June 2013 03:40 AM

    Is it really necessary to build this temple and get into future troubles with India? or we ourselves put-up a temple of our own way and enjoy as we do now?
