Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who offered prayers at the Veerabhadra temple in Lepakshi, Andhra Pradesh on Tuesday, was seen singing a Ram bhajan at the temple. The temple holds important significance in Ramayana. PM Modi chose traditional attire on his visit to the temple. He is on a two-day visit to Andhra Pradesh and Kerala on January 16 and 17. The significance of the place dates back to the Ramayana. It is believed that the bird Jatayu, wounded by Ravana, fell here after a battle against him while he was abducting Goddess Sita. The dying Jatayu who told Lord Rama that Ma Sita was indeed taken south by Ravan was then granted Moksha by Lord Ram. At around 3:30 PM, the Prime Minister will reach Palasamudram, Sri Sathya Sai District in Andhra Pradesh.
