As per a recent survey conducted by the Mumbai City Council, only 10 per cent of the temples in the city are in good condition.
According to the survey, nearly 70 per cent were built in the 19th century.
The survey also found that only two-thirds of temples in Mumbai have air-conditioning, which is one of the most important requirements for a temple.
The rest of the cities have air conditioning but it has not been introduced for decades.
While only eight temples in all the major cities have electricity, the majority of temples have air conditioned.
“In Mumbai, most of the public spaces and places where people congregate are air-con.
But the temples are in poor condition,” said Anil Singh, the chairman of the council, who conducted the survey.
According to a recent report by the Indian Council of Historical Research (ICHR), only five out of 100 temples in India are in decent condition.
In comparison, there are around 7,000 temples in New Delhi.
According the report, temples have been built in every major city of the country but there is a lack of air conditioning.
