New Statue Of Lord Hanuman Installed At Ram Janmabhoomi Site, Old Damaged Statue Immersed In Saryu River

INDIA, April 13, 2020 : A new statue of Lord Hanuman has been installed at the makeshift Ram Janmabhoomi temple site here. The old statue was damaged but could not be replaced till now due to the Supreme Court directive for maintaining “status quo” owing to the pending case on the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute. The old statue has been immersed in the Saryu river and the pran pratishtha [enlivening] of the new one has been done,” said temple chief priest Acharya Satyendra Das. Ground-leveling work will begin as soon as the lockdown is lifted.
