A 180-feet tall statue of Lord Shiva will be constructed at a cost of Rs 500 crore in Cambodia where the fifth dham (or shrine) of Hindu religion is set to come up. The four shrines of Hindu religion’s char dham pilgrimage have already been established in Dwarka, Badrinath, Jagannath Puri and Rameshwaram in India and a fifth one will now come up in Cambodia.

RSS leader Indresh Kumar reportedly said the upcoming shrine will play a crucial role in promotion and propagation of the Hindu religion in eastern Asia.
