Coconut breaking by devotees is a common sight in temples in almost all states across India as an offering to God. However, the coconut breaking adversely affects cleanliness in temples and lot of labour is put in to clean the temple at the end of the day. To curb this and maintain the cleanliness, a Hanuman temple in Sarangapur in Gujarat has hit upon a good idea. The temple management got a coconut breaking machine installed in a Hanuman statue erected outside the temple. If you go and insert the coconut in the mouth of the Hanuman, the machine inside will break it into two. The statue will return one of the two pieces to you through its hand. Just watch it.
