A unique Hindu
The temple will have murtis of Lord Krishna, Radha and a cow licking
Jaganaath says St Valentine and
Krishnamake the perfect mix.
'In Hindu mythology,
Krishnais the only god who is synonymous with love. During various phases in his life, he was loved by mothers, girls, the Yadavs and virtually by every character in the Mahabharat even though he sided with the Pandavas,' he said.
'We have ordered a marble statue depicting
Krishnaand Radha with a cow and a calf beside them. We have now asked the sculptor to show the cow licking Krishna’s feet to reciprocate his love for animals,' said Jaganaath, who is spending about Rs 2 lakh (200,000) on the project.
Unlike other temples in Tamil Nadu, devotees will be allowed to touch the deity of Valentine’s Sri Krishna, for 'what is love without touching?'
