Miracle at the Vishwa Temple
The temple where in 1995 a miracle of drinking statues occurred.
Location: 2 Lady Margaret Road, Southall, UB1 2RA
Description: This is where in 1995, 10000 people in 24 hours witnessed the 'miracle' of 15-inch statue of the bull Nandi and a bronze statue of the cobra Shash Naag drinking milk from cups and spoons.
Many journalists actively participated in these miraculous events. Rebecca Mae, a Daily Express journalist, wrote: I had a good view from the side and all I can say is that the statue appeared to suck in half a spoonful while it was held level by the worshipper. The rest was sipped reverently by the devotee. A photographer from a national tabloid newspaper was right in front of the statue. And he was convinced it was drinking the milk. He said he could see no mechanism to explain the phenomenon, after scrutinizing it at length.
