Security increased at large Hindu temple
by UPI

DELHI, India -- Indian security agencies said Friday that they had received warnings of a possible attack by Kashmiri separatists on the world's largest Hindu temple.

Security at the Akshardham complex on the bank of the Yamuna River in East Delhi was increased, Press Trust of India reported. Thousands of people visit the temple every day.

"We received an input that some militants belonging to Kashmir-based groups were planning to create terror in the capital by blowing up the temple," Deputy Commissioner of Police Alok Kumar said.

The complex, consecrated in 2005, is both a religious shrine and a tourist attraction with an IMAX theater and permanent exhibits on Hinduism. The Guinness Book of World Records has certified Akshardham as the largest Hindu temple in the world, although three other temples dispute this finding, arguing that Guinness included secular areas like restaurants.
