An ancient stone idol of Lord Vishnu has been discovered in Udaipur town of the state’s Gomati district.
The big discovery was made on Saturday when an excavator was carrying out digging at an old lake popularly known as Jagannath Dighi to increase the depth of the lake.

Much to his surprise and amazement, an old stone idol, suspected to have been carved out of black slate stone was discovered from the lake.

A large number of locals gathered at the spot to see the idol which according to many is that of the Hindu God of preservation, Lord Vishnu.

For the time being, the idol is being kept at a local club in Udaipur though both police and district administration have been informed about the same.

It may be mentioned here that Udaipur, also called the city of temples, was once the capital of the Manikya Maharajas of ancient Tripura.
