Impressive statue

The Hanuman Statue is really impressive, one of the tallest Hindu statues in the world. The temple is visited by the local Indian community and beautiful inside.

Took a little drive here with the kids to let them see some of our local sites. The facility at that time had no one around to give any information so you are... More

I took a visitor to see this statue recently.We got lost which I had a laugh at as I thought surely we would be able to see an 85ft statue from miles away. But we eventually made it. It is an 85 ft statue. My friend wanted to see it. We saw it. We took photos. We left. It did... More
