After installing the world’s tallest statue i.e. the Statue Of Unity, India sets focus on constructing the world’s tallest Lord Shiva murti statue. People are eagerly waiting for the statue’s final glance as it is just months away from the inauguration.
Sardar Vallabhai Patel’s statue stands 597 feet and this Lord Shiva murti will have a height of 351 feet in Nathdwara, Rajasthan. This will be the world’s tallest Lord Shiva statue.
It has been said that 85% of the work for the statue has been done and it will be inaugurated by March 2019. After the construction, the Shiva Murti is expected to become the fourth largest statue in the world after Statue of Unity, Spring Temple Buddha, and Laykyun Setkyar.
What really makes this statue special is the fact that it will be visible from Kankroli flyover which is 20 km away from the statue because of its height.
Around 750 workers have been plying the trade on this statue project for over the past four years. The foundation stone was laid in August 2012 by then CM of the state, Ashok Gehlot.
