Marking the special occasion of Hanuman Jayanti, Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled a 108-feet statue of Lord Hanuman in Morbi district of Gujarat via video conference.

“We have been seeing a similar grand Hanuman statue in Shimla for years now. The second has been established in Morbi today. I have been told that two more statues will be established in Rameswaram and West Bengal,” the prime minister said

As per the Prime Minister’s Office, the statue is the second of the four statues being built in the four directions across the country, as part of the ‘Hanumanji Char Dham’ project.

The statue has been set up in the west, at the Ashram of Bapu Keshvanand ji in Morbi, the PMO said in a statement.

The first statue of the series was set up in the north in Himachal Pradesh’s Shimla in 2010. The work on the third statue, in the south at Rameswaram has started.

The festival of Hanuman Jayanti is celebrated to mark the birth anniversary of the Hindu god by the devotees of Lord Hanuman.
