The evening of 25th April saw a 3D laser extravaganza like none other. Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi inaugurated the event on-line,  as the 55 foot giant Hanuman Statue at the Seetaramaswami Temple in Hyderabad came alive before a stunned audience.

The show was produced and presented by T S Pattabhiraman Trustee, Sri Seetharamaswami Temple Trust The crowds were ecstatic. They saw Lord Hanuman roar into life in a manner that was purely the stuff of dreams.

This laser projection mapping show was a culmination of years of effort in understanding classical religious art forms in the language and metaphor of high technology.

Filmmaker, tech expert and Guinness world record holder MANI SHANKAR(16 December, Tango Charlie and Knockout ) visualized, designed and directed the 3D Laser Projection Mapping show.
