Richest Temples in India!

ISKCON is considered in the Northeast in terms of management and revenue like Kamakhya, Tripura Sundari and Modern Business firms. Earlier Osho used to earn a lot. The income of the Haveli community is also high. In terms of personal income many people like Nirmal Baba, Ram Rahim, Asharam etc live or work a lot.

India is a country of temples. Indeed the borders of the once united India are, as per my understanding: Afghanistan to Cambodia and Gilgit to Lanka. It is very difficult to assess the temples of that time. BUT: FYI: When Pakistan separated in 1947, there were about 33,000 temples, including those largely with mythological history, and now there are barely 300 temples. Similarly, there were many temples even before the Mughal Empire, either mosques were built or those temples were destroyed. You will not find so many pilgrimage sites steeped in history anywhere else in the world.
