The woman said that her husband appeared to her in a dream one night and asked her to build the temple. It contains a bust-sized statue of her husband made of marble.

The woman's photos and videos of herself worshipping in front of her husband's idol have gone viral on the internet.

Prakasam: A woman from Andhra Pradesh has caught the internet by storm after erecting a shrine in memory of her late husband. The widow said that it was her way of honouring her husband's memories. The temple was built in the Prakasam area of the state, and a video of a woman performing puja there has gone viral.

Padmavathi, a native of Nimmavanam village in Podili Mandal, told local media that women in her family have always been observed ‘worshipping their husbands.' As a result, after her husband, Gurukula Ankireddy, died in a car accident, she chose to build the temple, according to sources.

The woman was shown on video bowing before a white marble bust-size statue of her late husband, with whom she had been married for 11 years.

The widow said that her husband returned in her dream a few days after his death and begged her to build a shrine for him, according to a report.

This isn't the first time someone has erected a massive monument in memory of their deceased spouse. In August of last year, a Karnataka businessman went viral after placing a statue of his late wife in his "dream home."
