In our honorable Prime Minister Narendra Modi`s most recent visit to the US, more than 200 Indian sculptures were returned by the US to India. Once stolen and sold abroad, these sculptures are said to be centuries old and as our PM himself has stated are a part of our country`s culture and heritage. Can anyone tell me what are some of these sculptures and what is their estimated value?

A statue of Saint Manikkavichavakar, a Hindu mystic and poet from the Chola period 850 AD to 1250 AD, was stolen from the Sivan Temple in Chennai. The statue is valued at 1.5 million dollar.

Poonam, yes it`s obvious that these sculptures will be kept in the museum. But it`s not confirmed yet that in which museum.
