NASHIK: A 108-feet tall idol of Lord Rishabhdeva, the first Teerthankar of Jains, carved out of a single rock, has entered the "Guinness World Records" as the world's tallest Jain statue.

The impressive statue is located atop Mangi Tungi mountain near Teharabad village of Baglan tehsil in this North Maharashtra district.

The idol was consecrated last month during a grand ceremony where rituals were performed for several days. BJP President Amit Shah, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and several Ministers had visited the ceremony on different days.
