Saibaba Temple gets diamonds worth Rs.1.18 crore
Shirdi (Maharashtra), Aug 1 (IANS) An identified person has donated two diamonds worth Rs.1.18 crore to the Shirdi Saibaba Temple here, an official said Wednesday.
"A Sai Baba devotee donated two diamonds of two and three carats each and a gold chain. We found the diamonds in the temple's donation box. They are valued at Rs.1.18 crore," said an official of the Shri Saibaba Sansthan Trust that runs the temple.
However, this is not for the first time the temple has received such a big donation.
In March this year, Mumbai businessman Kiran Mehta donated a 40-kg silver throne. The estimated value of the throne was over Rs.20 lakh.
In December 2007, a builder from Hyderabad donated a 95-kg gold throne worth nearly Rs.9.5 crore on which the idol of Saibaba now rests.
