London: For over 250 years Madame Tussauds London has enthralled and entertained guests with incredible life-like wax figures of some of the world’s most famous faces.
Many prominent personalities from India have also been commemorated at the honourable museum. The next to join is Yog guru Baba Ramdev who will soon have a wax replica at the Madame Tussauds museum of London.
In a press conference on Friday, the yoga guru shared the news with the world. He informed that he received the proposal for the statue almost two months back, however, it took a great amount of persuasion to accept it.
He said, “Yogis’ scientific, secular, and universal knowledge should be promoted. With this in mind, I have accepted the proposal to get a look-alike wax statue at the museum.”
Baba Ramdev will be the second saint to be depicted at the notable wax museum after Swami Vivekanand. Previously, an artist from Rajkot also dedicated his work of wax to Baba Ramdev.
Since opening its doors over 200 years ago, Madame Tussauds’ has welcomed millions of visitors thanks to their expert and life-like wax figures. After moving to London following the French Revolution, Madame Tussaud established a base in Baker Street, showcasing historical figures cast in wax as well as gruesome relics of the bloody French Revolution.
After her death, Madame Tussauds’ attraction continued to grow as more wax figures were added as well as expanding with locations around the world. Now based in 24 cities around the world, Madame Tussauds’ London remains the original flagship.
