The Ramanuja statue, also known as the Statue of Equality, is a statue of the 11th-century vaishnavite Ramanuja. "Who championed the principle of equality in all aspects of living, including faith, caste, and creed," according to the saint.
This is situated on the premises of the Chinna Jeeyar Trust in Muchintal, Ranga Reddy district, on the outskirts of Hyderabad on the Bangalore highway. https://statueofequality.org

........I observed that every visitor, regardless of age, was able to understand and value the notion being promoted—that of equality. I've seen that visitors are making special visits to this area.

.......The statue of equality serves as a poignant reminder of Ramanujacharya's teachings that everyone is created equal in the eyes of God.
