A 55-foot-tall statue of a Hindu deity is being built in Brampton, Canada and is said to be completed by 2024.
Indian sculptor Naresh Kumawat is crafting what will be Canada’s largest statue of a Hindu god.
You may have already caught a glimpse of Hanuman, a god and “commander of the monkey army,” according to the Encyclopedia Britannica, as you drive on The Gore Rd., just north of Hwy. 7.
The sculpture is already up outside Hindu Sabha Mandir but while it has yet to be officially unveiled, people stopped by to take photos of the huge statue.
While many people are happy to pose alongside the giant god, some questioned the need for it, while others brought up the fact that the statue of Sir John A. Macdonald is still boarded up in a box at Queen’s Park (and will be for the foreseeable future).
