God doesn't necessarily enter the Murthi to start living in a Temple. The God must be attracted to living there and sometimes simply doesn't go. This has happened with very famous indian Temples, known only to Yogis. What God was invited to live there, and have you seen Him/Her ? If not, these are only nice pictures.
