World`s tallest Hindu temple to come up in Bihar
Varanasi: The world`s tallest Hindu temple, on the lines of the famed Cambodia`s Angkor Wat, is all set to come up in Bihar.
"The Ram temple, to be constructed by Bihar-based religious group Mahavir Sthan Nyas Samiti with an estimated cost of Rs 150-200 crore, will be 270-feet-high and spread over an area of over one lakh sq ft," Bihar Dharamik Nyas Board head Acharya Kishore Kunal said.
The five-storey temple will come up at a place near Ismailpur village on Hajipur-Bidupur road in Bihar`s Vashali district, he said.
It would be similar to the world famous Angkor Wat temple in Cambodia and would be named Virat Angkor Wat Ram Mandir, Kunal said.
The main Ram complex will be at a height of 72 feet. The temple will have escalators for the old and infirm. The project is expected to be completed in 10 years time, he said.
