Patna: World's largest Hindu temple will be built in Bihar's East Champaran district by a religious body Mahavir Mandir Trust (MMT), said its secretary Kishore Kunal on Sunday.
Built over 50 acres land donated by the Kathwalia Math on the Chakia-Kesharia road, Kunal said, the temple would not be the exact replica of the Angkor Wat temple but the shikhar (peak) and architectural designs would be few of the common features of the two religious structures.
The five-storied temple will be 1,240 feet long, 1,150 feet wide and 270 feet tall and will house the idols of Radha and Krishna, Shiva and Parvati, Ganesh, Surya, Vishnu and Dashavatar.
The construction cost of the temple would be about Rs 300 crore, he said.
