After a year of field surveys, mapping, and collecting information, we put forward the idea of “reviving the temple through design.” The design and plans for restoration combined the spectacular traditions of the temple with contemporary aesthetics. In this way, we aimed to revive and rejuvenate the temple, while encouraging the beliefs and the people, once dislocated from the surrounding area, to return. The restoration appeals to modern sensibilities, while still respecting the history of the temple. Thus, the restoration has made the religious and cultural significance of the temple more inclusive.
