What do you get when you blend elephants, Aladdin's cave, the Taj Mahal and the Eiffel Tower, with a sprinkling of Disneyland on top?
No, it's not some destination far away in an imaginary land.
You have to go no further than Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh's house in Sirsa, Haryana.
Spread across acres, Gurmeet Ram Rahim's house is nothing short of a (slightly disastrous) version of Disneyland.
The self-styled godman's house is flamboyant, even if done up in what some would call poor taste, with life-sized ships and caves cropping up intermittently among colourful buildings that served as places of prayer and meditation. If you look closely at the video enclosed you can spot a mini-Taj Mahal, Eiffel Tower and Aladdin's cave, with a benign Sun God, the kind you drew in your kindergarten art work, looking over the sprawling campus.
The Sirsa godman who convinced his followers to drop their family names, and in some cases family jewels, too, lived the life notwithstanding his love for garish ensembles. A luxury Porsche Cayenne GTS model (number plate HR 24T 0025) can be spotted parked in an aluminium and glass garage.
The metallic yellow car is priced at about Rs 1.5 crore as the price range for the vehicle starts at Rs 1.35 crore and you have to pay an extra Rs 8 lakh for the yellow colour.
Neither Dera Sacha Sauda, nor police have been able to confirm who the car belongs to.
On Tuesday, the Punjab and Haryana High Court ordered the search of Gurmeet Ram Rahim's house in Sirsa following his conviction in two rape cases.
