Beiji Xuantian Shangdi, Zuoying

2.9
Beiji Xuantian Shangdi claims to be the world's tallest waterside statue. Standing at 72 m (236 ft) tall, the imposing, vibrantly colored statue of the Xuantin God takes up much of your view as you make your way across a small bridge flanked by statues guarding the monument's entrance. The god holds a 38 m (124 ft) long sword in his right hand, known as the seven-star sword, and is also referred to as ‘the first sword in the world.’ You can also find a small temple of worship located right beneath the monument.
