Famouse Murudeshwara Statue, Karnataka

Murudeshwara temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva lies in the holy beach town in the Bhatkal Taluk of Uttara Kannada district in the state of Karnataka, India.

It is the second tallest statue of Shiva in the world. The statue is 123 feet (37 m) in height, and took about 2 years to build. The statue was built by Shivamogga's Kashinath and several other sculptors, financed by businessman and philanthropist Mr R.N. Shetty, at a cost of approximately 50 million rupees. The idol is designed such that it gets the sun light directly and thus appears sparkling.
