Jīrṇoddhāra (जीर्णोद्धार).—Erection and consecration of images fixed in temples which have fallen into dilapidation, is called Jīrṇoddhāra. Mention is made in Agni Purāṇa, Chapter 67, about the principles of Jīrṇoddhāra, as follows:

The priest should adorn the image with ornaments and perform 'Stavana'. If the idol is very badly ruined by age it must be abandoned. Broken image and that with any part of the body severed or disfigured should also be abandoned, even if it is made of stone or any other material. When the image is renovated the priest should make burnt offerings thousand times with Narasiṃhamantra (spell or incantation). If the ruined image is made of wood it should be burned. If it is made of stone it should be placed at the bottom of deep water, either in the sea or anywhere else. If it is made of metals or jewels, it must be put into water. The ruined image should be placed in a carriage and covered with a cloth. With instrumental music and so forth the image should be taken to water in a procession and then submerged in water. After this the priest must be given a gift. Only after this should the new image be erected and consecrated. On a good day in an auspicious moment a new image of the same material and measurement as of the old image should be erected and consecrated by the priest.
