Fact Check: Does This Image Show Sculpture In Nagvasuki Temple In Prayagraj? Here’s The Truth

A picture is being shared on social media with a claim that it is a sculpture from Nagvasuki Temple in Prayagraj.

The post read: यह मूर्ति *एक ही पत्थर को काटकर* बनाई गई है*, कैसे बनाई, यह भगवान जाने, या बनाने वाला… *नाग वासुकि मन्दिर, प्रयाग* क्या लग रहा है बरगद का पेड़ ??? जी नही *ये नक्कासी पत्थर पर कि गयी है* सनातन धर्म मे ऐसी ऐसी चीजे है जिसे देख कर वैज्ञानिक आज भी अपना सर पिटते है लेकिन समझ नही पाते कि ये बना कैसे होगा*। और हम ताजमहल को देख कर पागल हुए जा रहे है। प्रचार करे अपने सनातन के अविश्वसनिये मंदिरो का।

(English Translation: This idol is made by cutting a single stone, God knows how it was made, or the builder…Nag Vasuki Temple, Prayag. Does it look like a banyan tree? No, This carving has been done on stone. There are things in Sanatan Dharma, that even today scientists are trying to understand, how it was made. And we are going crazy after seeing Taj Mahal. Promote your incredible temples of Sanatan)

Here’s the link to the above post.


NewsMobile fact-checked the post and found the claim to be misleading.

We put the picture through Reverse Image Search and found a Pinterest link of the same image. According to the link, the picture is of an artistic banyan tree at Utsav Rock Garden in Karnataka.

Taking a cue from the above, we checked the official website of Utsav Rock Garden and found this image on the site.

We also searched for Nagvasuki Temple which is situated in Prayagraj and after an extensive search, we did not find pictures of any such sculpture at the temple.

The above information proves that the sculpture is not from Prayagraj. Hence, the post is misleading.
