The 150 feet tall idol of Shiva is located at Sanga around 20 km from Kathmandu on the way to Banepa

The Shiva idol is holding a Trishul on left hand and right  hand in blessing posture.

This copper plated cement  murti (idol) is made to withstand minor earth quakes and strong wind.

The 150 feet Lord Shiva statue was constructed at the sponsorship of Kamal Jain, the proprietor of of Hilltake Water Tanks and is dedicated to Shiva who resides at Kailash which is further north of Sanga.

The center and the park were the statue is situated has facilities like spa, yoga, meditation center, and nature walks.

Kamal Jain made a wonderful contribution. This statue is now iconic monument to Nepal.

The spot was not intended to serve as  a tourist attraction, but thousands of people are already thronging the place to have glimpse of the huge Shiva idol.

"There are around 5,000 visitors on a week day and larger crowds on weekends, national holidays and festivals."


Kamal Jain is now seeking support from the Nepali Government for a road to be constructed from Jorpati to Sanga.
