Such will be the statue of Shankaracharya.

A 108-foot statue of Adi Guru Shankaracharya is likely to be unveiled in the pilgrim town of Omkareshwar in Madhya Pradesh in September. The work of installing the statue is going on at a rapid pace. This statue has been named the Statue of Oneness. Along with the statue, a museum and study center will also be built here. It is expected that this work will be completed in a few days. It will be unveiled by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

In this regard, Khandwa MP Dnyaneshwar Patil has also invited Prime Minister Narendra Modi to visit Khandwa. However, the date of inauguration has not been decided yet. Senior officials of Indore and Bhopal divisions are constantly inspecting the installation of the statue of Adi Guru Shankaracharya being built on Omkar Mountain. The last date of installation of the statue is also being discussed with the engineers. According to sources, the officials have instructed the engineers to complete the installation work by August 31.

The work of the statue is going on at a rapid pace.

The 108-foot-tall statue of Adi Guru Shankaracharya will be made of ashtadhatu. Its weight will be about 100 tons. The statue will be installed at a height of about 50 feet. The face of the idol will be in the south direction i.e. Omkareshwar Jyotirlinga and Narmada River. The rare portrait of this statue has been made by the famous painter Vasudev Kamat.
