Sachin Tendulkar may have retired from international cricket, but his fanfare is strong enough to live on. It has been reported that a temple has come up in Bihar which is devoted to him.

IANS reported that, "A temple for Sachin came up on Tuesday in a Bihar village with a life-sized statue of the cricketer. The white marble statue was erected amid the chanting of Vedic prayers in Atarwalia, the village of Bhojpuri film star Manoj Tiwari in Kaimur district.

"It is a small gesture for the 'God of Cricket'," Tiwari told media in the village, about 100 km from Patna.

Tiwari said Tendulkar, who played his last cricket match for India last week in Mumbai, was "an incarnation of God in the world of cricket"."
