The statue is very tall and beautiful but the surroundings is not finished. You have to park in a busy narrow street if you want to take a picture of it.

Ran into it by accident. Much better looking than expected. The sight is not finished yet but you can get close enough to take worthwhile pictures.

They need to get this finished so people can get closer. We parked in a restaurant parking lot by it. You have to eat there to get parking. I'll definitely go back once the area is open to the public.

This is one of the tallest statues/monuments in the world. Is not fully open to the public but you can look at it from the street.

The statue itself is beautiful but its surroundings lack attractions. The grounds around the statue are totally empty except for a few street food posts. Honestly it isn't such a breath taking sight.
