Tallest Statue of Hindu Deity

Field review by the editors.

Hockessin, Delaware

Members of the Hindu Temple in Hockessin pooled their resources and had a 25-foot-tall, 30-ton statue of Hanuman, the god of strength and knowledge, carved in India. It was shipped to the U.S. and hauled to Delaware on a flatbed truck in 2020.

The granite statue is supposedly the tallest of a Hindu god carved out of a single piece of stone in the U.S.

The towering gray rock effigy is made more photo-worthy with the routine addition of colorful robes and flowers.
