BANGALORE, INDIA, April 3, 2001: Bangalore could very well be called the City of Temples with at least four to five temples on every other road. Many of these houses of worship have been built on government land. With no apparent patrons or upkeep, many have fallen into disrepair. Chief Minister S.M. Krishna has warned the populace that all temples, mosques and churches built on government land without authorization will be destroyed. Supporting the Bangalore Development Authority and other urban bodies, the government wants to clean up the city to strengthen its position in the global market for investors.
