Amdavad’s Mukesh Patel donates five kg gold more to Ambaji mandir

Ambaji, 27 July 2013

40-year-old Mukesh Patel who is originally from Khoraj village near Gandhinagar but now settled in Ahmedabad had pledged to donate 25 kg gold for golden shikhar of Ambaji mandir. Today he donated third installment of five kg gold to Ambaji mandir. Patel has already donated 10 kg gold to mandir earlier. Thus he has so far donated total 15 kg gold out of 25 kg promised.

The historic Ambaji temple is located on the Gabbar hills in Banaskantha district. It is one of the 51 shaktipeeths.

Mukeshbhai walks to Ambaji Mandir from Gandhinagar since last over two decades once ever year. He said there was a time when he was jobless and his financial status was not good. Thanks to Goddess Ambaji today he successfully runs his own construction company(Siddhi group). Mukeshbhai believes that his donations to Goddess Ambaji was minuscule in comparison to the grace she showers on him and other devotees. In 2009, Mukeshbhai had also donated Rs 75 lakh to the Umiya Mata Mahotsav in Unjha.

It should be noted here that a project to convert Ambaji mandir’s top part(60 ft Shikhar with 358 kalash) into golden is going on at present.

    My request to Mukeshbhai and such good persons, you should empower the people who are in struggle now which you have faced in bad time, you have to be support mechanism to whom who are needy. Sorry to say and humbly sorry but your such efforts of donations will help to Gold merchants and temple trust, not any help to our society directly. Again here my views only to support our social sector, with no intention of any objection of your faith in Goddess. Also all we appreciate the holly and cheritable activities of any temple trust which has higher value than putting Gold on any structure, because the God never demanded such.
