Uttar Pradesh Raj Bhavan will soon have a "grand statue" of Lord Shiva. A 'bhumi pujan'' ceremony was conducted and the foundation was laid by Governor Anandiben Patel on Wednesday (15 September) for the same.

"The statue of Lord Shiva will be four feet high and will be installed on a 10-foot long and 7-foot wide platform of granite. On its background, a seven-foot-high mountain and other picturesque construction will also be done," stated an official statement.

This is the first time that the statue of a deity is being installed in Raj Bhavan.

On the occasion, the governor directed officials to connect the Raj Bhawan library with libraries of the APJ Abdul Kalam Technical University and Lucknow University.
