 The world famous Meenakshi Sundareswarar temple in Madurai will be the first temple to commence the service in the next few weeks.
 “The technical work is on. Soon, the website will have a separate link for e-sales,” said an official at the Meenakshi Amman Temple.
 “The products that we intend to sell are only available within the temple premises now. With this new launch, people can buy it sitting at any corner of the world,” he added.
 However, the temple’s signature product ‘Meenakshi Amman Kungumam’ (vermillion) will not be available online. “Some countries do not allow Kungumam. We are studying on that,” a HR and CE official said.
 In the next six months, twelve temples would offer e-sales.
 “Every temple has something unique and we want our devotees to reach out to devotional items easily,” said P Dhanapal, Commissioner, Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments Department.
