Patna, Nov 19: Sachin Tendulkar, the most celebrated cricketer in India, who is worshipped as the "God of cricket" by his millions of fans, is now all set to get a temple in Bihar in his honour.

The temple, which has been built in Bihar's Kaimur district has been dedicated as a tribute to Tendulkar with a "life-sized statue" for his immense contribution and wonderful career in cricket.

The decision to erect the temple for Sachin was taken by Bhojpuri actor and singer Manoj Tiwari, who is an ardent fan of Sachin.

The white marble statue was erected amid the chanting of Vedic prayers in Atarwalia, the village of Manoj Tiwari in Kaimur district.

"It is a small gesture for the 'God of Cricket'," Manoj Tiwari said.

"It is a small gesture for the 'God of Cricket'," Tiwari told media in the village.

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

Sachin bid farewell to his long cricket- career at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on Saturday. In an emotional speech, Sachin thanked everyone from his family to his fans for supporting him and giving him so much love.

Soon after his retirement, the centre government announced that the India's highest civilian honour, "Bharat Ratna" will be conferred to the cricketer legend.
