World's highest statue

Statue of Unity in western India will be 597 feet tall when it's finished in October - that's almost twice the height of the Statue of Liberty and nearly 100 feet higher than the current record holder, China's Spring Temple Buddha. It's being built on Sadhu Island in the state of Gujarat

Images reveal that the foundations have been laid for the structure along with central support pillars but there is still a bit of work to do before it takes on the form of the late political and social leader Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, whom it will honour.  

Along with a visitor's centre, the Statue of Unity will have a viewing gallery at 501 feet, which can accommodate up to 200 visitors at a time. It will offer expansive views of the surrounding area. Adjacent to the attraction will be a three-star 128-room hotel, with restaurant and conference facilities.
