Automated 108-feet Hanuman Idol in Delhi

The arms of this Hanuman idol open and a trolley holding idols of Lord Ram and Sita comes out of his heart. Well, this is not an animated or 3D scene. This unique 108-feet idol is located at Pusa Road roundabout in New Delhi. The surprises are not yet over; the statue stands on the severed head of a demon, houses a four-storied temple and an underground cave with water.

It took around 13 years to complete the idol, which has been placed 30 feet under the ground. The four-storied temple inside the statue houses temples of Lord Ram, Lord Shvia, Sai Baba and Vaishno Devi. The door to the temple is thorough the mouth of the demon. There is a fountain on the statue with water flowing from the head.

The automated arms opening of the Hanuman Statue takes place only on Tuesdays and Thursdays after the evening prayers at 1900hrs.
