The temple has been planned to have Ghosala (shelter for cows) at the temple and the devotees would be encouraged to personally feed them.
The cows, portraying the four Vedas, and also the idol of Santhana Krishnan were sculpted by Sthapathi Shankernarayanan.
“Since the Vedic times importance has been attached to cows…all the gods are believed to reside in the body of Kamadhenu - the generic cow. Her four legs are the scriptural Vedas,” says Subramanian.
Apart from patronising Ghosala, steps would be taken to conduct Gho pujas, he said and added that this was for the first time that such a temple dedicated to Lord Krishna with four cows representing the Vedas is being built.
