Answer to Where this Buddha Statue is

The statue of the Buddha in Lumbini Park, Hyderabad, India. It is 58 feet (18 m) tall and weighs 350 tons, making it the world's tallest monolithic (solid stone) statue of the Buddha standing on a concrete platform in the middle of Hussain Sagar, a 2.2-mile man-made lake. After an accident, while attempting to place the statue that submerged it and required 2 years of salvage, it was installed on December 1, 1992, and consecrated in 2006 by the Dalai Lama.  Photo and partial text from Wikipedia.
