Religiosity in India is scaling new heights. Just on the outskirts of this erstwhile summer capital of the British raj, a giant 108 feet high idol of Hanuman was unveiled at Jakhoo Hanuman temple, overlooking the entire city. Deemed to be world's tallest statue at 108 feet at the highest altitude of over 8100 feet and constructed at a cost of Rs 1.5 crores, it surpasses the current tallest statue of 'Christ the Redeemer', which measures at 98 feet and stands at an altitude of 2296 feet in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
