Lord Murugan is a popular Hindu deity among Tamil Hindus, and is worshipped primarily in areas with Tamil influence, especially South India, Sri Lanka and Malaysia. This religious statue, unveiled in 2006, was said to be made by fifteen sculptors from India and 15 other general workers, taking more than three years to build. Standing at 42.7 meter (140.09 ft) high, it is considered the world’s tallest statue of Lord Murugan. The statue, which cost approximately Rupees 24 million (US$670,000), is made of 1550 cubic meters of concrete, 250 tons of steel bars and 300 liters of gold paint brought in from Thailand.

One response to “Lord Murugan

  1. Hi, thanks so much for putting all the credits on the photos that you used from Flickr.

    It means a lot to use “Creatives” who can sometimes get their work stolen without any credit whatsoever.

    So from all of us Photographers,
    A massive thank you!

    Ed
