A Temple on Top

There is a temple on the 3rd floor of a housing building in Badlapur (which is about 70 kilometers from city of Bombay) of Goddess Ashtdash Devi (Goddess with 18 hands). So what is unusual about it. Well the weight of the idol of the goddess of 1.5 ton! And this weight of goddess's idol could damage the structure of the building, which also houses many homes. Well residents are trying to remove the temple from their building, but without any success so far. Good luck to them. In India, it is easy to establish a temple, almost anywhere, but quite difficult to remove one.

How did they get it to the third floor in the first place??

Yes, that is a big mystery. Maybe they brought the raw material for the idol inside the flat and then asembled it there.
