    RAJKOT: A temple dedicated to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Gujarat's Rajkot village is drawing supporters of the ruling BJP from neighbouring villages also.

    It took around two years to build the temple and initially had a photograph of Prime Minister Modi. It rose to prominence after his win in the general elections last year.

    Ramesh Undhad, who donated funds for temple building, said it took nearly four years to get the Prime Minister's idol made.

    "This idol cost us Rs. 1.65 lakh. We tried getting it made from various artists for over three to four years but no one could make an exact copy of Modi. Then finally we called artists from Odisha and they created this idol, which looks exactly like Modi," said Unhad.

    Unhad added that fans considered Prime Minister Modi as the second Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, one of the country's most looked-up statesmen.

    Meanwhile, village head, Mansukh Thumar, said every village should have a temple like this.

    "Prayers are conducted in this temple in morning and evening and people from the entire village come to the temple including people from the neighbouring villages," said Thumar.

    After Sonia Gandhi temple, one now for Modi in Rajkot. Ahahaha!! #bizarre

    The temple will be officially inaugurated by minister of state for agriculture, Mohanbhai Kalyanjibhai Kundariya on February 15.

    I guess there was a clarification posted by TOI the next day that it was an assumed amount made by designer.

    Yep next you'll tell me Shah and Modi wear fake burberry gucci etc scarves. ;)

    Irresp if whether is was worth 10 lacs or 7 lacs or 60 lacs. wearing suits with your own name pinstriped doesn't behoove the pradhan "sewak" of the country.

    The temple making pinstriped har har modi etc is all part of a cult manufacturing strategy.

    NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said he was appalled by reports of a temple being built in his name and asked people to instead put time and resources in fulfilling the dream of 'Clean India'. "Have seen the news about a temple being built in my name. I was appalled. This is shocking & against India's great traditions. "Building such temples is not what our culture teaches us. Personally, it made me very sad. Would urge those doing it not to do it," he said. His reaction came after it was reported that supporters of Modi in Rajkot in his home state Gujarat have built a temple for him. The temple, with a bust of Modi in the sanctum, stands on Kothariya road and is planned to be inaugurated on February 16. "If you have time & resources, please devote the same towards fulfilling our dream of a Clean India," Modi tweeted.

    One of the most stupid things to have been done.

    Too much of deifying individuals and placing them on a high pedestal.

    Gandhi, Nehru, the Gandhi - Nehru family and now Modi.

    We are a real odd people, who have no self confidence and require idol worship of humans to get the feel good feeling.

    Wearing that suit, irrespective of cost, Modi made the biggest blunder.

    Some apparently feel he is the Messenger of the Holy Words of God.

    There are others who think that there is no God and all the stuff about holy words of God being conveyed is pure hokum.

    This world is an odd place with all sorts of weird psychos.

    Great that Modi spoke out against this and got it canceled. Stands out from others like Sonia Gandhi, who had no problems with temple being built in their name.

    Controversy ended. Another day gone for Modi Haters.

    Troll mode on :p: The temple didn't went well with High cast privileged class who themselves have Brahmins as servants. They can't see a Backward Class Hindu be worshiped. They call themselves reformists who hate castism and want the orthodox boundaries to be breached and challenged.

    Modi's caste got targeted and he has to ask them not to not worship him. Sad ...very sad...

    Good that Modi spoke out against this, it wouldve used to further the "dear leader" type nonsense the media wants to create.

    Some people want him to take action on him, by demolishing the temple and so on. That is nonsense, peoples can build temples/worship create gods based of their own ideas...we've never had issues with this as long as they dont harm others.

    Some one built a temple dedicated to Modiji.
    Modiji wore 10 lakh rupee dress.
    And next, what next?
    Now they will target his regular clothes. They cost 10,000 each. Modiji should have worn a lungi and vest bought in some local shop.
    My country men are full of hypocrites.
    Have they ever asked how much money other politicians spend on their family? Where does that come from?
    You ----ers are spineless hindhus who have no back bone in their body, no doubt still sucking up to some foreign power's....

    Modi is not a backward caste.

    His caste people aka modh ghanich call themselves Brahmins.
