The temple is in a bad shape. I hope that the Devaswam Board will conserve the temple keeping all the heritage values intact. In the case of a historic building, important decisions, which will alter the character of the building, should not be taken. Structural assessment has to be conducted before structural modifications are made. Immediate conservation measures need to be carried out to protect the building especially in areas which have been attacked by termites. The relevance of conserving the complex is relevant, as the Mahadeva temple is an integral part and example of the temple architecture in Kerala. It has not undergone any transformation during the recent past, which has happened in the case of many temples, churches and mosques.
