At a time when Maharashtra is building the world's tallest Chatrapathi Shivaji statue and Gujarat hosts the world's tallest statue with a height of 182 metres (of Sardar Vallabhai Patel), here is Telangana planning to build the world's tallest BR Ambedkar statue.

The height of the statue will be around 125-feet. The K Chandrasekhar Rao government is reported to have set aside Rs 146.5 Cr towards the project.

It will come up at the famous NTR Gardens in Hyderabad over an area of 10 acres.

Telangana's Telugu twin, Andhra Pradesh, is also building a tall statue for Ambedkar. YS Jagan Mohan Reddy in July okayed a plan to erect a 125-feet BR Ambedkar statue at Swaraj Maidan in Vijayawada. Earlier this week, he instructed officials to get it done in 13 months.
