400-Year-Old Statues Found Near Bangalore


BANGALORE, INDIA, November 7, 2009: Workers of the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) accidentally stumbled upon three ancient stone statues, believed to be at least 400 years old, while laying new pipelines near the Kote Anjaneya temple.

It is claimed that the statues belong to an old rundown temple situated near the Venkateshwara Temple of the Vijayanagar dynasty. Nearby residents consider the discovery to be auspicious as a new temple is under construction just a few metres from the place were the statues have been unearthed.

The ancient stone statues were of the Gods Krishna and Nandi, and Goddess Annapurneshwari.
