1. The initiative that started in 2019 has finally borne fruit. Another of the world's highest Jesus statues stands in Brazil's wee bit Encantado village. An enormous Jesus monument that would be even taller than Rio de Janeiro's iconic Christ the Redeemer has been in the spotlight for quite some time! Although the monument has been completed, the building construction is yet to start. Hence, it is expected to be dedicated later in the year. This statue has a heart-shaped platform above the chest, 40 feet above the ground. Guests can enjoy the panoramic & breathtaking views of the landscape from this vantage point.
