BANGALORE, INDIA, June 18, 2001: Victoria Layout in the heart of the city seems to be a haven for unauthorized shrines, in this case Christian altars -- mostly dedicated to St Mary. Many are small, but on Richmond Road Circle one is a full-fledged altar with its walls laced in marble, and a mini garden around it -- all crammed in the little space on the pavement. There are few answers for questions like when and by whom this unauthorized altar was constructed. Be it large or small, any shrine or altar without the proper authorization runs the risk of eventual demolition by the Bangalore Development Authority Task Force.
