This beautiful statue located in Eureka Springs, Arkansas is Breathtaking! It stands about 70 feet tall and oversees the town with a Powerful calmness.. The extended arms seem to hold the town in them. When coming in from Beaver Lake you can see the statue even before reaching town. It is a must see when you visit Eureka Springs.

Located in beautiful Eureka Springs, the Christ of the Ozarks is a beautiful statue on a quiet hillside. A great place for quiet meditation and prayer. Close by is a piece of the Berlin Wall, a chapel and the Passion Play. Plan on spending the day in the area if it is your first visit.

It's incredible to think we've never stopped to visit and experience the Christ of the Ozarks until recently. It is very special and truly a sight to behold. We had a bright, blue sky the day of our visit and the colors were mesmerizing! It's a steep walk behind the statue but there were wheelchairs there too that were fine with the paved pathways. There were restrooms nearby and plenty of parking. Take the time to visit and take in the majesty and labor of love that went into the design & creation of this statue.

If you can't afford a trip to Rio to get your inspiration from a massive statue of Christ, then do the next best thing and go to Eureka Springs, Arkansas to see the Christ of the Ozarks. Now, I can't tell you the exact dimensions, but I will shout out at the top of my lungs that the statue is HUGE, MASSIVE and awe inspiring.

You get some sense of the size even from far away. The statute sits atop a beautiful Ozark Mountain top. It can be easily seen for many miles before you ever arrive at the destination. There is parking within 1000 feet of the monument so you can walk right up to it. You will swear that you are almost gazing up into heaven by the time you raise your eyes to see Christ’s face. Even more spiritual and calming is the outstretched welcoming arms to all that come to visit. It feels like a personal welcome as you come to admire, pray, and contemplate in the most beautiful scenic environment.

On the property of the Great Passion Play. Nice to look at and meditate. A short walk in a quiet mountain atmosphere
