“We have sent the water and soil from all the rivers and religious places in the state. It will be used for sanctifying the temple site,” VHP Prachar Pramukh Basavaraj said.

According to him, Suttur Math seer Shivaratri Deshikendra sent water from Cauvery and Kapila. Dharmasthala Manjunatha Dharmadhikari Veerendra Heggade sent water from Netravati river while Sringeri Shankaracharya Sri Bharati Tirtha collected water from Tunga, Bhadravati and Sharavati.
