Kerala Temple Trust
Provides for upkeep of Kerala Temples. The Southern seacoast state of Kerala is the home of a variety of beautiful temples. Many are owned and managed by ancient family boards, but with changing times devotee's offerings provide insufficient support, and thus temples come under the control of predominantly politically appointed boards. To avoid this and to help relieve the government of this burden, the Kerala Temple Trust has been created to give permanent support to these temples.
The first temple to be sponsored is called Thrikkaikunnu, located in the northern village of Kottayam (near Tellicherry), and as the endowment grows, additional temples will be assisted.
