Therefore, it is the responsibility of the Hindu society to protect the sanctity of temples. For this, it is is necessary to organise and unite temple trustees, priests and devotees to ensure that the sanctity of temples, rituals, temple-culture are conserved, to solve the problems of temples, provide adequate facilities to the devotees, ensure that the Darshan proceeds smoothly, among other issues.
