Update (07 JULY 2022):
A photo through a post is being widely shared on social media claiming that it shows a hill in the shape of Sai Baba. Let us fact-check the claim made in the post.
Claim: Photo shows a hill in the shape of Sai Baba.
Fact: The photo had been edited. In the original photo, it can be seen that the hill is not in the shape of Sai Baba. Hence, the claim made in the post is FALSE.
When a reverse image search is done on the photo, the same photo was found on a website. According to the pixels.com website, the photo is a piece of digital artwork by Anil Samotiya uploaded on 19 January 2018.
The original photo of the hill is an island near the Ao Phang Nga National Park in Phang Nga Province, Thailand. There is no image of Sai Baba in the original photo. Clearly, the original one was edited to include the image of Sai Baba in the viral post.

A post is being shared on social media with a claim that it shows an apple with a Hindu goddess on it. Let’s fact-check the claim made in the post.
Claim: Photo shows an apple with a Hindu goddess on it.
Fact: It is an edited photo. In the original photo, there is no Hindu goddess on the apple. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE.
When the photo was run through Google Reverse Image Search, many similar photos of an apple were found in the search results. However, in those photos, there is no Hindu goddess on the apple. Some of those results can be seen here, here, and here.
The goddess on the apple in the posted photo can be found here. So, two different images have been used to create the edited photo in the post.
This is not the first time that such edited visuals have been shared on social media in the name of gods and goddesses. Previously, when such edited visuals were shared on social media, FACTLY debunked some of them. The related fact-check articles can be read here, here, and here.
To sum it up, many edited visuals are being shared on social media in the name of different gods and goddesses.
