According to international media, the monument will have a height of 192 meters. It will exceed 76 meters statue of Buddha from Myanmar, considered the highest in the world and will be taller than the Statue of Liberty. The cost of construction was estimated at 530 million dollars.
The monument will be built on an artificial island a few kilometers from Mumbai. Even if the statue will be worthy of the Guinness Book of Records, many people have criticized the project. They believe that their country so poor, does not require such expenditures.
