Sachin Tendulkar Temple at Bihar

According to Hindustan Times, in 2013 a mandir was inaugurated  by Bhojpuri actor Manoj Tiwary along with Kaimur district magistrate Arvind Kumar Singh with a life-sized (5.5 feet) statue of the Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar at village Atarwalia, in Kaimur district, about 170 km south-west of state capital Patna. 
The white marble statue, which dons the official blue jersey of the Indian national cricket team, weighs 850kg and was crafted at Rajasthan’s Nathdwara at the cost of Rs. 8.5 lakh. It has been installed on a 10-feet high brick platform. Tiwary also laid the foundation for a temple which would house Tendulkar’s statue.
