Mankata, Uttar Pradesh: In this stunning landscape, the hills and valleys of the state’s eastern Ghazni region have been sculpted into the shape of a giant man.
The stunning landscape of Mankati, in Uttar Pradesh’s Jhansi district, has been sculptured into the shapes of a massive man.
A team of artists, sculptors and landscape designers have created the iconic manmade landscape, which is said to be the largest in India, a project that has been launched in partnership with the Jhanskari Mahila Art Centre.
The artist’s father, who lives in Mankattu, had constructed the landscape with his own hands over a span of 18 years, said Prabhu Chaudhary, president of the Mankanti Art Centre, who has been spearheading the project.
Chaudharies father is an artist and has been working on Mankamatas project since his early days.
He had been working for the project for nearly 30 years.
The landscape is a unique blend of hills, valleys and lakes, with trees and shrubs growing out of the sandstone and rock formations, Chaudhas father said.
The Jhanker National Heritage Park is one of the oldest manmade landscapes in the country.
It was first established in 1883, with the construction of the first bridge over the river Kumbhar.
It is also the oldest in the world.
