Fungal ability in production of organic acid has a crucial role in discoloration and degradation of different types of stone in culture heritages. Additionally, stone objects may support novel communities of microorganisms that are active in the biodeterioration process. This investigation focuses on mycological analyses of microbial biofilm from Pundarikakshan Perumal temple at Thiruvellarai, at Trichy District. In this work, the ability of fungi producing organic acids and biodiversity of fungal consortia was examined on the stone monuments.
