On Saturday, October 29, 2022, the 369-foot “Vishwas Swarpoopam” also called Statue of Belief, the largest Shiva statue in the world, will be unveiled in Rajasthan’s Rajsamand region. Spiritual leader Morari Bapu will read Ram Katha throughout the following nine days, and spiritual and cultural events will continue until November 6.
In the presence of Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, Assembly Speaker CP Joshi, & others, preacher Morari Bapu will officially unveil what is said to be the highest Shiva monument in the entire world.
Height and Weight:
The weight of the Statue of belief is 30,000 tonnes and its height is 369 feet.
The highest Shiva statue in the world has a unique area of expertise. During construction, about 3,000 tonnes of steel & iron, 2.5 lakh cubic tonnes of concrete, and sand were used. The statue is wind-resistant up to a speed of 250 kph. The statue, which is situated atop a hill with 51 bighas, took ten years to build.
The project’s cornerstone was laid in August 2012 by Morari Bapu and Ashok Gehlot, who was the CM at the time. The statue’s height eventually reached 351 feet during construction, despite the fact that its original 2012 design was for a 251-foot height.
Shiva’s statue’s matted hair was given a Ganga stream, resulting in a further height rise to 369 feet. The statue has amenities like corridors, staircases, and elevators.
45 kilometers from Udaipur lies the Rajsamand district town of Nathdwara in Rajasthan. The area surrounding the statue will feature a food court, adventure park, a jungle café, and other attractions like bungee jumping, a zip line, and go-kart racing.
How to Reach:
Nathdwara can be reached by air, rail, and road. The closest airport is in Udaipur, and from there it is simple to get a taxi or a bus to Nathdwara. Buses are the most practical way to go to Nathdwara and are frequently accessible from many locations.
