Ghosta is home to Lebanon’s tallest statue of Jesus!

The tallest statue of Jesus in Lebanon was inaugurated last Saturday on a hill called “The Mountain of Mercy” in Ghosta. It overlooks the coast of Jounieh, according to

. The statue, which is made of resin and fiberglass, is 17 meters long. It was transported from the Lebanese sculptor Tony Awad’s workshop in Baabdat to Ghosta. What’s interesting is that the statue’s base does a full rotation every day at 3 PM. To get there, believers take a path full of trees. This trip in nature allows them to pray and mediate in a calm environment.
