That’s not all. The reports also mention that a museum complex will be built around the statue with two 360-feet tall glass towers which will provide a view of the KSR reservoir. A bandstand, an indoor stadium and a replica of historical monuments will also be built. The idea behind this is to boost tourism.

According to more reports, activist groups are blaming the government for not doing anything to curb illegal sand mining around river Cauvery that is causing damage to the environment.

This statue is being made to honour river Cauvery which is the lifeline for three states in the south – Kerala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. The statue will show Mother Cauvery holding a pot out of which water will flow down continuously

Reportedly, 400 acres of land is required for the project to be successful, all of which would cost around Rs 1200 crores.

Further reports also mention that along with this statue, a smaller statue of Nalvadi Krishnaraja Wadiyar is also being planned.
