A large number of devotees thronged a temple in Varanasi on Friday after rumours that tears rolled down the cheeks of the statue of Lord Hanuman here.



The rumours spread like a wildfire and people rushed to the temple in the house of one Nandlal Sharma to take a glimpse of the crying deity.



Sharma said he at first did not believe when his son informed him about it and washed the face of the deity but claimed that tears continued to come out of his eyes.



The devotees later performed a special prayer in the temple to placate the Lord amid superstition that his crying was not a good omen.
