This is how the world’s tallest Shiva idol was built…

The story of this 369 feet high statue becoming the world’s tallest Shiva statue is also enjoyable. According to the report, when the plan to build this statue was prepared in 2012, it was planned to keep its height at 251 feet. But later, during construction, its peak reached 351 feet. After this, a plan was made to put a stream of Ganges in Shiva’s hair; its height went 369 feet.

Elevators, stairs, halls, etc., have also been made in this statue. Three thousand tonnes of steel and iron and 2.5 lakh cubic tonnes of concrete and sand have been used during construction. Winds blowing at a speed of 250 km will not affect the statue. The statue of Belief’ was visualized by Mr. Madan Paliwal, Chairman of Miraj Group, Udaipur. The concept was further developed by Studio Maturam Art which designed the 351 feet high statue, while Skeleton Consultants provided the structural design, and the work began in early 2016.
