Elevators, stairs, halls have also been made in this statue. 3000 tonnes of steel and iron, 2.5 lakh cubic tonnes of concrete and sand have been used during construction. Even winds blowing at a speed of 250 km will not affect the statue. Statue of Belief’ was visualized by Mr. Madan Paliwal, Chairman, Miraj Group, Udaipur. The concept was further developed by Studio Maturam Art which designed the 351 feet high statue, while the structural design was provided by Skeleton Consultants and the work began in early 2016.
