A portion of Shri Tapkeshwar Mahadev Temple near River Tamsa collapsed following heavy rains since Monday night in the Dehradun district.

"Amidst heavy downpours since the previous night, a part of the Tapkeshwar Mahadev temple near River Tamsa collapsed and caused a lot of damage to the temple property," said the founder of the temple, Acharya Bipin Joshi on Tuesday.

He added that as soon as the Tamsa River started taking a formidable shape due to the rains, the temple premises were completely vacated.

"As soon as the Tamsa River started taking an alarming form due to the rains, all the priests and servicemen were asked to vacate the temple premises," Acharya Bipin Joshi said.

"All the deities of Lord Ganesha Maharaj, Mata Vaishno Devi, Ram Darbar, Hanuman Ji Maharaj, Lakshmi Narayan Bhagwan were also put to sleep," he added.

Damage has been caused to the structure of the temple. However, no human loss or injuries have been reported, he said.

Tapkeshwar Temple, also known as Shri Tapkeshwar Mahadev Temple, is a temple in Dehradun dedicated to the Hindu deity Shiva.

The temple is popular as both a tourist destination and a pilgrimage site in Dehradun. Pilgrims bathe in the nearby sulphur-water springs before entering the temple.
