Located in Saanga, the border of Bhaktapur and Kavre districts, this 108 ft tall statue of Lord Shiva is supposedly the tallest statue of Lord Shiva in the world. The combined height along with the base is about 144ft. There is a children's park and other recreational features around the statue that makes it a popular destination for visitors. About half and hour from Kathmandu, it boasts amazing views of the valley along with the mountains and lush green Bhaktapur fields.

Apart from the primary Shiva statue, there is a good-looking statue of the whole family (Shiva, Parvati, Kumar and Ganesh). The stairs leading to the main statue have Shiva-lingas of 12 different forms of Lord Shiva.

There is an entrance fee if you choose to enter through the Hilltake Health and Homes facility. But there is a slightly longer trail that can bring you straight in front of the Shiva Statue for free. That being said, the Hilltake facility does provide you with a great environment and amenities to enjoy and relax after the 20 some kilometers ride from the capital.

I read that "Kamal Jain, a renowned businessman, is the master brain behind this statue." Whoever is involved in this did a great job and chose a great location too. Sanga, Bhaktapur will be well known now. Jai Sambhoo Report this
