The idol of Lord Ram for the grand Ram Mandir at Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh is being built at a village three km from the temple town.

A 251 metres tall statue of the deity is being indigenously built at Manjha Baretha village for the proposed Ram Mandir, according to reports.

This will be the tallest statue of Lord Ram in the world and will be built completely indigenously.

The tallest statue in the world at present is the statue of Gautam Buddh in China, which is 208 metre tall.

In India, Sardar Patel’s Statue of Unity stands at 82 metre high.

However, the work for the acquisition of land to build the idol is still underway.

The statue is being built by the banks of the Sarayu river.

The 251 metre high built will stand on a 50 metre high base and will reach 301 metre high.

The base will be atop a museum, where the various avatars of Lord Vishnu will be displayed.

One digital museum will also be constructed.
