World’s Biggest Jesus Statue

Croatia’s a second largest city that staunchly Catholic country, plans to erect the biggest Jesus statue on a hill. It was announced by Mayor Zeljko Kerum that the 39 meter (129 foot) high statue of Christ, three meters (10 feet) taller, will erect. It is taller than the world’s current biggest in Swiebodzin, Western Poland.

A crane lifts into place the head of the world's largest statue of Jesus Christ in Swiebodzin, western Poland, in 2010. 

Kerum said that it will be erected on the Marjan hill, “It would be a tourist attraction, a new shrine… We are however a Catholic town and a Catholic country.”

But on Monday, 4,000 people almost liked in the facebook page entitled: “Kerum, in Jesus’ name, don’t build Jesus”, there are some arguing that the money should be better spent on windmills or solar panels.
