| Updated: April 7, 2023 14:51

To celebrate Hanuman Jayanti on Thursday, Home Minister Amit Shah unveiled a grand 54-feet tall statue of the deity at Sarangpur temple in Botad district.

The statue has been placed in the temple’s backyard, over a 1,35,000 square feet area. The temple is dedicated to Lord Kashtabhanjan, another avatar of Lord Hanuman. 

The newly inaugurated statue weighs 30,000 kg and is visible from a  distance of seven kilometers. Five different metals (panchdhatu) were used in its construction. The total diameter of the base is 754 feet while the internals have been crafted from steel. The statue is truly a marvel of modern engineering and is earthquake resistant. 

In a series of tweets, the Home Minister said that the magnificent statue, made of panchadhatu, is a wonderful example of Indian sculpture and craftsmanship. The statue will become a centre of reverence for the devotees visiting the place in the coming days.

“Today, in one of the grand temples of Kesarinandan, Salangpurdham (Gujarat), I visited Maharajadhiraj Hanuman ji and offered prayers at the world-famous Shri Kasthabhanjandev Temple. Devotees have unwavering faith in Bajrangbali ji’s Kashtabhanjan form. Worshiped the Lord for everyone’s welfare,” Shah tweeted.

Shah also inaugurated Sri Kastabhanjandev Bhojnalaya, built at a cost of Rs 55 crore. This hi-tech kitchen has been made from clay tiles sourced from 25 pilgrimage spots across the country. “On a daily basis, food will be prepared for more than 20,000 devotees. This is an important public service effort by Sri Kastabhanjan Temple,” he tweeted.
