The foundation stone of the World's largest statue of Lord Shiva, being made by Miraj Group, was laid by Pujya Murari Bapu in presence of the Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot in Ganesh Tekri area of the Nathdwara on 18th August, 2012 . The statue will be 351 feet long, which is similar to a 35 storey building. The construction of the giant figurine is backed by Miraj Group.
Unlike other statues of Lord Shiva, this one would be quite different as Shiva won’t be holding the Trishul nor he will be in the position of blessing, but in a more pleasing appearance. The statue will be made from concrete and cement and it will take nearly Three years to complete the statue. The work will be done by Naresh Kumar and his team of sculpture artists from Gurgaon. The land allocation work has already been completed by the Rajasthan Government.
“I am feeling happy to see the dream coming true, this 351ft. statue will be dedicated to the world. I am inspired to take this initiative because of love and trust I have received from the society, to whom I am always thankful”
