Human beings are constantly trying to imagine the Supreme Being (which is formless) in a form (murti or statue or idol) to offer worship, prayers, pujas and rituals. People want the murtis of gods to be the costliest, tallest and biggest. Here is a list of top 10 tallest Hindu God Murtis (Statue or idols) in the World. Currently the tallest Hindu murti is the Shiva at Sanga in Nepal which was inaugurated in 2010.
As per Hindu tradition, the Supreme Truth (Brahman) is beyond imagination. But human beings need a form to worship and we modern day people are obsessed with size and height. So we are constantly increasing the size of Hindu Murtis. Therefore this list will be constantly updated.
