AYODHYA: An Ayodhya resident has constructed a temple dedicated to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in Bharatkund area, about 25 km away from the Ram Janambhoomi site.
The construction of this temple was started the same day (August 5, 2020) Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation of the Ram Temple.
The temple has a life-size statue of the CM wielding a bow and arrows and a halo behind his head. The statue is clad in saffron robes. Special prayers are offered twice a day and ‘prasad’ is distributed among worshippers.
Bharatkund, situated on Faizabad-Prayagraj Highway is believed to be the place where Lord Ram’s brother Bharat bade him farewell before the former went into exile.
‘I was impressed by Yogi’s work’
Prabhakar Maurya, who built the temple, said: “We have built the temple of Yogiji who is building the temple of Ram.” Maurya said he was deeply impressed by the works of the CM.
“The way the chief minister has done public welfare works, he has acquired a deity-like image. That is why the idea of a temple for him crossed my mind,” he said.
Maurya said he recites hymns in front of Adityanath’s idol every day, just as he does for Lord Ram. Maurya said he is jobless and landless but earns around Rs 1 lakh a month by posting devotional songs on YouTube. “I built the temple from this money,” he added.
