369ft Steel and Iron Clad Statue of Lord Shiva in Rajasthan is the tallest in the World | Vishvas Swaroopam

A 369ft tall statue of Lord Shiva has been recently unveiled in Nathdwara of Rajsamand, Rajasthan. Inaugurated by Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, the statue will be reportedly the world’s tallest statue of Lord Shiva. Here is a detailed report on SURFACES REPORTER (SR).

Dubbed Vishvas Swaroopam, the statue of Lord Shiva has been constructed by Tat Padam Sansthan. Weighing nearly 30,000 tons, the statue of Lord Shiva sits on the hill of 51 Bigha in a meditative state, just about 45km from Udaipur. The statue is visible from 20km away and gets illuminated at night.

Vishvas Swaroopam will comprise four lifts and three stairways to direct people atop. The statue will also have a hall for devotees to gather around for religious and spiritual activities. Made of 3000 tonnes of steel and iron, and 2.5 lakh cubic tonnes of concrete and sand, the construction of the statue took nearly four and a half years. Nearly 300 artisans have worked on the statue. Reportedly, the statue has been constructed to last 250 years and can withstand wind speed up to 250 kmph.

For nine consecutive days until November 06, religious and spiritual activities are to be held at the hill, according to the Sansthan trustee and Miraj group chairman Madan Paliwal.
