  • If we are to believe the signs, it is the highest statue in honour of Shiva. In the fall of 2016 is already fully liberated from the forests and opened to the public after restoration.

  • I have never seen such great Shiva statue. It's in perfect location we can see nice views around we can see the typical village around that place. 
  • Away from the main city, though a must visit. On the top of the hill. Option to go by cab all the way up though walk from the hill side is good. There is a resort for which you will have to buy ticket...  more »

  • A great time spent in Sanga. Got an opportunity to witness the beauty of the huge statue of goddess shiva that resembles how powerful and strong is he. Tourists and pilgrims from all over the world come in hope to spend a good time and yes indeed they do.

  • The world's tallest Shiva statue, a legacy on its own. A small fun park for children and a stress management platform offered in a resort environment. Truly Great!!!
  • Went there before this wonderful creation had made 🙏🎉
  • The world's tallest statue of Lord Shiva. Just make a time and visit in your weekend. Best place for pilgrims, visitors, and nature view.
