Do you know that the world's tallest Ganpati is not in India?

Ganesh Chaturthi 2021 - Talking about the tallest idol of Ganesha, you all would think that such an idol will be in India and that too in Maharashtra, which is the biggest center of Ganapati worship.


But when you are told that that idol is not in India, then you will not be able to guess in which country it can be. Which country can be better than Nepal or Cambodia, which has so much reverence on Ganesha that it can build the tallest idol in the world.


This idol is not centuries-old but was completed in 2012 itself. This statue is made in Khlong Khwang city of Thailand. A Ganesh International Park has been built here, in which this 39-meter high bronze statue has been installed.


If you look at this idol carefully, a lotus flower has been made on his head and 'Om' has been made in the middle of it. This idol has been made by mixing 854 different parts of bronze. It took 4 years from 2008 to 2012 to build the entire park including this statue.


In Thailand, the 4 fruits are kept in holy works, all those fruits are kept in the hands of Ganesh Ji, one of which is jackfruit, second mango, third sugarcane, and fourth banana.


Mango is considered to be the symbol fruit of this region which is also a symbol of prosperity. A snake is wrapped around his stomach, a laddu is in his trunk and a mouse is sitting at his feet. The bracelet on the hands and the ornament on the feet is a sign of wisdom, in Thailand Ganesha is recognized as the god of wisdom and intelligence.




Who built the world's largest Ganesh idol?

Now you would be interested to know who got it built? Under the Ayutthaya Empire, a city named Chachoengsao was established in 1549, where there is an organization named Chachoengsao Association, which is always committed to fulfilling many types of religious and social work.


Chachoengsao Association president Pol Jen Samchai Vanisheni had decided that he would build the world's tallest Ganesha statue, and the search for the site began.


This 40,000 square meter site was searched in Khlong Khuean. The soil here is very fertile, and due to being a completely agricultural area, this place was also chosen for the installation of the idol of God.


At this place, first, an International Ganesh Park was built here, then the world's largest Ganesh idol was installed in it. The Chachoengshao Association has also built a central museum here, which was built to preserve local history.


Hindu civilization flourished and flourished in this area for centuries. In the last few years, this area around the Bank Paekong River in central Thailand has emerged as the biggest tourist spot. Actually, those people wanted an international idol of God there and in such a situation, there was an agreement on the name of Ganeshji.


This idol of Ganesha is a sample of the excellent workmanship of the eminent sculptor Pitaka Charlemalao. Regarding this idol, the association claims that it is the world's tallest Ganesh idol and so far no one has challenged their claim.
