New Big Hanuman Murti (Idol) at Mysore - Karya Siddhi Hanuman in Mysore

Ganapathi Sachchidananda Ashrama in Mysore is preparing to consecrate a big murti of Hanuman – Karya Siddhi Hanuman idol – in Mysore. The Hanuman murti is 42 feet tall and is place on a 30 feet pedestal. The pedestal stands on Karyasiddhi Hanuman Sannidhi (Temple).

The murti is chiseled out from a 200-tonne Grey Granite Rock.

The reason for making the Hanuman Murti:
Sri Ganapathy Sashichidananda Swami, the ashram chief, said - People who have faith in Hindu scriptures believe that their wishes will be fulfilled with the darshan of Hanuman. This urge of devotees made me do this.

Some details about the Murti:

It took 10 months for 18 sculptors to carve the murti. Subramanya Achar from Kurnool, Andhra Pradesh, headed the work.

The murti is installed on a 30-feet high pedestal. The pedestal itself is on an octagonal temple.

A 5-feet tall saffron Hanuman murti has also been erected to facilitate puja.
