The photos are not of Abu Dhabi Temple as it’s not yet built.

Spread the truth:

A set of few photos is viral on net claiming PM Modi ji is inaugurating a temple in Abu Dhabi and the photos are of that temple.

It’s completely false as Modi ji is laying foundation stone and the Temple doesn’t even exist yet. The photos are from different Temple and Opera House.

Many times people get so overwhelmed with the idea of something they like, they fall for everything relevant to the idea even if it’s true or not.

Vinod Chavda (Member of Parliament (Kachchh) & Advocate) tweeted

“Beautiful Pictures Of Abudhabi ‘s 1st temple Tomorrow opening by our Beloved PM Shri @narendramodi Ji.”

but deleted later on correction.

Ritu Rauthar first tweeted

“PM Modi will inaugrate this Grand Hindu Temple in Abu Dhabi tomorrow.. While HINDUS waiting for 25 years now to get their Identity back which is lying barren and naked in Ayodhya.. Maybe One fine day …We will reclaim what is ours ..”


But on realization that the Temple is not yet constructed, she changed her words rightly and and tweeted again with same New Jersey Temple images –

Mahesh Bhatt called these Pics as “Conceptual” while these are real but from different places.



This is Opéra de Paris, Paris, France.

This has Nudes on the roof which obviously can’t be in a Temple like ours.

But Yes, PM is going to lay stone for the Temple in Abu Dhabi

Newspaper The Hindu says –

“Three-nation tour will begin in Palestine and end in Oman

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay the foundation stone of a temple in Abu Dhabi during his visit to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the External Affairs Ministry said on Monday. The event will be part of a three-nation tour from February 9 to 12, starting in Palestine, where Mr. Modi will be the first Indian Prime Minister to visit and pay tributes at the memorial of the late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.

“As part of a community engagement programme, he will be meeting top professionals and, in that, there will be a special event, which will be the laying of the foundation stone of a Hindu temple,” said Mridul Kumar, Joint Secretary in charge of the Gulf region.

India’s demand

The UAE granted the temple project after India conveyed the demand of its nationals for a place of worship during Mr. Modi’s 2015 visit to the country.

“The structure of the temple, the deities and the idols are aspects that the Indian community will have to work out with the UAE government,” said Mridul Kumar, Joint Secretary in charge of the Gulf region, explaining that members of the Indian community will manage the place of worship in coordination with the UAE authorities.

Officials said it indicated the “commitment of the UAE to diversity”.

Apart from the symbolic religious moment, Mr. Modi will visit the Wahat Al Karama, the memorial to fallen soldiers of the UAE.

He will also address the World Government Summit in Dubai.

The Hindu had reported earlier that Mr. Modi would begin his visit from the Jordanian capital of Amman, from where he will be travelling to the West Bank territory of Palestine.

Technical halt

Officials said the halt in Amman would be “technical”.

“We have de-hyphenated Israel and Palestine and we see them as mutually independent parts of the policy the Prime Minister is undertaking,” said B. Balabhaskar, Joint Secretary in charge of the West Asia and North Africa (WANA) division.

Mr. Modi will visit a Shiva temple in Oman during his first visit to that country on February 12. He will hold bilateral meetings with the two Prime Ministers of Oman.”

More Fakes –

This is from a satsang tour in Year 2013

Last Year a similar goof up was made by Babul Supriyo regarding Rajkot Bus Stop. He posted computer generated photo of the Bus Stop as how it would look like on completion as claiming to be complete and about to be inaugurated by PM Modi. In fact like this, PM only did the bhumi pujan

OMG! Is that India ? Is that a Rajkot Bus Stand ? No, it doesn’t exist ! May be few years later.

One thought on “The photos are not of Abu Dhabi Temple as it’s not yet built.

  • Just a small correction. The areal view is of BAPS Swaminarayan temple in Robbinsville and not Venkateshwara temple.
