It is a 216-feet-tall statue that is made of Panchaloha (an alloy of five metals) and weighs 60,000 kg. The Bhadra-vedi, or the base building of the statue, is shaped like Sri-yantra and it is 54- ft high. The Padma-Beetham, with 36 elephants and 108 lotus-leaf structures, is 27 feet while Tridandam (sacred flagstick) is 153 ft. A 120-kilo gold idol of Ramanujacharya is in the inner sanctum and 108 Divya Desams, ornately carved replicas of various Indian temples, surround the statue. The project comprises a 45-acre complex and the total cost incurred was Rs 1,000 crore (all donations).
