  • A great monolithic statue, a slightest imagination make you wonder how it was carved out from top to bottom with so much perfection. On top of the hill you feel tranquility and Eternal peace. The Pilgrimage you will always cherish.
  • Must visit to see one of the largest free standing statues in the world. You need to climb up around 500+ steps to reach up the hill top. Would suggest you take the climb in the morning or evening.
