The ancient Rajagopalaswamy temple at Ananthamangalam in Nagapattinam district got back three of its idols stolen 42 years ago, authorities said .

The idols, which were recovered in London, reached the temple on Saturday from Chennai.

In 1978, four bronze idols - that of Lord Rama, Sita, Lakshmana, and Hanuman belonging to this 15th century temple were stolen.

Porayar police had registered a case and even arrested three people, but the idols couldn't be traced.

Following information from a Singapore-based voluntary organisation which monitors the trade of artefacts in the international market, three of the four stolen idols were recovered from an antique collector in London during September this year, authorities said.
