Thiruvalluvar goes to Ganga, Hardwar. History in the making.— Tarun Vijay (@Tarunvijay) June 14, 2016
The statue was sculpted by a fifth generation sculptor at Namakkal, L M P Kumaresan, who said that his team of seven
members worked round the clock and completed it in 20 days.
The statue was moved to Chennai from Namakkal on Tuesday and will proceed on its onward journey to Haridwar where it will be erected on June 26 on the banks of river Ganga.
