Palani (TN): An Austrian firm has been asked to conduct a survey for the second rope car facility to reach the famous hill shrine of Lord Muruga here.

Stating this, Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowment Minister Anandhan told reporters on Saturday that the ropeway will be constructed using latest technology.

To a question, he said the renovation and consecration of temples would be taken up, depending on fund availability.

He also said a hike in pension for the temple employees was under consideration.
