Top 10 tallest Hindu God Murtis (Statue or idol) in the World

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.

    1. if you don't understand the teachings of Hinduism at least keep quiet do not criticize people who are trying to spread true things...

      Human mind cannot imagine the Supreme Being he is formless - God is as small as the smallest thing you have imagined and as biggest you can imagine.

      All these murtis are just an attempt nothing is complete.

  11. Hindu theology that teaches that God is ultimately formless, nirvishesh brahman, is only one of the prominent points of view in our diverse Hindu tradition. To be fair, many Hindus know God as the supreme savishesh brahman, the Supreme Lord that has form, personality, and divine lila. Attributing formlessness to the Lord is only one point of view.
    Thanks for the great photos...
