An 83-year-old seer, who lives in a cave in Rishikesh, donated ₹1 crore towards the construction of Ram mandir in Ayodhya.

The donation made to the Visva Hindu Parishad (VHP). This has been collecting money for the temple construction. It collected donations of about ₹5 crore in the state.

“I’ve been living in the cave for over half a century. As a seer, I live on donations from the devotees visiting the cave. When I came to know about the VHP campaign, I decided to donate the amount for Ram Mandir for which we all have been dreaming for long,” said Swami Shankar Das while speaking to the media.

The bank officials expressed surprise when the seer offered the cheque for ₹1 crore. Upon checking, they found that his account had the requisite balance. The officials then contacted the local RSS functionaries who reached the bank and helped Das donate the amount in the Ram Mandir Trust.

The VHP earlier said that they would visit 24 lakh families in 14,526 villages and 73 towns in Uttarakhand under the campaign. This to collect donations for Ram Temple.
