Prime Minister Modi releases postal stamp on Ramayana

Varanasi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday released a postal stamp on ‘Ramayana’ during his visit to historic Tulsi Manas temple here, an official statement said.

Modi also stressed how the life and ideals of Lord Rama continue to inspire everyone

Releasing the stamp in the precincts of the Tulsi Manas Temple, he said: “Stamps have a special place in society. They are a wonderful way to preserve our history.”

Modi also stressed how the life and ideals of Lord Rama continue to inspire everyone, according to the statement.

Later in the evening Prime Minister Modi visited the famous Tulsi Manas and Durga Kund temples here and offered his prayers.

Accompanied by Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, Modi sought to know detailed information about the Manas temple, which was inaugurated by then President Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan in 1964.

The temple draws thousands of devotees every year. Behind a stone named ‘Manas’, there are five books kept with Ram-Ram written on it by people. The Prime Minister, a staunch devotee of Goddess Durga and who is on a nine-day Navratri fast, also offered prayers at the ancient Durga Kund temple.

Modi was informed by its priests of the temple that it was built by King Sudarshan and was renovated in the 17th century by Queen Bhawani.

Earlier in the day, soon after arriving in the temple town, also his parliamentary constituency, Modi inaugurated 17 projects and laid foundation stones of six others.

He will see the famous ‘Subh-e-Benaras’ on Saturday morning and has some other events to attend before he flies back to the national capital around noon. For the night he is staying at the DLW guest house.
