In response to your query,
Yes the temple can be removed from the road for infringement of the road a it an established case law. The problem stems from the Ramapuram Kalasathamman Koil temple authorities vs the State. Ramapuram Kalasathamman Koil temple authorities were infringing on the public road by constructing an extra mandapam and erecting barricades to limit traffic to only two-wheelers, which was obstructing the path. The Madras High Court made several attempts to summon the temple authorities to appear before the court and after not showing up for multiple summons the court ordered for complete inspection of the temple area and removal of any encroachment of the public properties by the temple.
