A devotee’s dream has become a reality within 8 years with the construction of India’s tallest Hanuman statue at Madapam, Narasannapeta mandal of Srikakulam district. The devotee Jayi Ramanamurty, a common man, dreamt in 2005 that the tallest statue for Lord Anjayaneya will be constructed on the banks of Vamasadhara river. His dream was not taken seriously initially but slowly devotees came forward with donations to make the project a reality.
In the beginning, a devotee M.S.N. Raju of Cheepurupalli contributed Rs.10 lakh and hundreds of other devotees collected around Rs.70 lakh to execute the project within the stipulated time. It is estimated that the entire project cost would be around Rs.1 crore after the construction of temple and meditation centre which are essential for devotees to spend more time after offering prayers at the statue.
