The 1.56 minute long video of the statue of Lord Murugan in the Aruppukottai Thattankulam temple with its eyes open has gone viral on social media. Followers are being asked to comment on its authenticity.

Fact Check:

There are occasional rumours circulating among the people that the idols of gods in the temples are eye-opening. Crowds flocked to the temples with such information.

The statue of Lord Murugan at the Thattankulam Temple near Aruppukkottai has been going viral for the past few days with a video of 1.56 minutes to go. In the 1.56-minute video, the face of the Murugan statue is sprinkled with water and saffron is applied to the mouth and forehead.

The fact that only the eye is glowing because the area of ​​the statue is oiled shows that it is overflowing. But to say that the statue is eye-opening is completely false.

Only the right eye of the statue looks like the human eye is open. But, in the left eye there is no such thing. The right eye of the statue has a shower of water and the light in the oil rubbed into the eyes is visible to the human eye. However, a closer look at the video revealed that no such sign was visible to another eye nearby.

The oil rubbed into the statue’s eye should reflect the light of the cell phone or the light of the lamp. This is because I was able to see the light fade in some places and change to the left eye when the video shooting angle changed.
