Temple chariot gutted in East Godavari fire
The 40-foot high chariot of the Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy temple in East Godavari caught fire at around 1 am on Sunday and is totally gutted. The temple chariot was made of teak wood.

VIJAYAWADA, Sept 6: The wooden chariot of a temple in East Godavari in Andhra Pradesh district caught fire in the morning on Sunday. Only the temple's chariot was gutted.

The chariot of the famous Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy temple in Antarvedi township caught fire at around 1 am. The 40-feet high chariot was made of teak wood and was parked in a shed on the compound. The temple chariot is used only during the 'Radhotsavam' at the Lords celestial wedding festivities. Antarvedi is one of the famous pilgrim centres in Andhra Pradesh.

The cause of fire is being investigated. Police and the fire brigade extinguished the fire by 3 am but the temple chariot could not be saved. There was no casualty and no other damage to the Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy temple.

Devotees gathered in the morning and staged a protest, alleging sabotage and demanding inquiry. Vishwa Hindu Parishad activists also joined the protest.

''We have appointed Endowments Additional Commissioner Ramachandra Mohan as the inquiry officer. He has been asked to coordinate with the police and determine the cause of the fire'', Endowments Minister Velampalli Srinivas told PTI.
