In the bustling city of Bangalore, amidst the chaotic urban landscape, there exists a man whose hands have been instrumental in shaping the Christian spiritual landscape of the region. Mr. T.L. Simon, a talented Christian religious statue manufacturer, has earned a well-deserved reputation for his exceptional craftsmanship and dedication to his faith. Over the years, he has left an indelible mark with his awe-inspiring creations capturing the hearts of believers and art enthusiasts alike.

 Nestled in the heart of South Bangalore, the serene village of Mariapura stands as a testament to faith and tradition. This quaint Catholic enclave comes alive each year with a captivating spectacle that transports its visitors back in time – a grand biblical drama that unfolds upon a natural stage adorned by gentle hills and swaying trees. The centrepiece of this mystical setting is the open-air amphitheatre, a marvel of architecture that can accommodate over 25,000 eager spectators. As the sun sets and the stars emerge, the village becomes a canvas for the timeless stories of the Bible, narrated through the heartfelt performances of devoted villagers. Mariapura’s annual biblical drama not only ignites the spirit of the faithful but also beckons all to partake in the profound beauty of culture, community, and devotion, all set against the backdrop of nature's splendour.


One of Mr. T.L. Simon's most remarkable achievement is the world's biggest statue of St. Anthony of Padua. This magnificent creation now stands tall and proud in Mariapura, serving as a beacon of hope and devotion for countless devotees. The intricacy and attention to detail in this colossal sculpture are a testament to Simon's passion for his art and his unwavering commitment to his faith.

Aside from the iconic St. Anthony statue, Mr. T.L. Simon has adorned various religious institutions with his exquisite work. At St. Ann's Convent in Tambuchettipalya, his skillful hands sculpted a striking 20-foot Pieta statue. The emotional depth conveyed in this masterpiece has moved many visitors to the core, fostering a sense of spiritual connection with the divine. He is also known for providing top-notch statues at affordable prices.

Moreover, Simon's artistry extends beyond standalone statues; he has also contributed to the architectural beauty of churches in Bangalore. The Arch at St. Patrick's Church and the grottos in Mestripalya, Begur, and Mylasandra bear his distinctive touch. Each of these installations serves not only as artistic elements but also as symbols of religious significance, enriching the worship experience of the faithful.

Simon's journey as a Christian religious statue manufacturer started decades ago, fuelled by a genuine passion for his faith and a desire to spread its messages through his art. His workshop in Silvepura, Bangalore became a sanctuary where raw materials transformed into expressions of devotion and love. Every sculpture he creates carries a part of his soul, and his dedication shines through in every detail. Beyond the borders of Bangalore, Simon's work has gained recognition in various parts of Karnataka like Ballary, Kalaburgi and alike.



In acknowledgment of Mr. T. L. Simon's artistic prowess and commitment, his creation, the world's tallest statue of St. Anthony of Padua, which stands tall in Mariapura, Bangalore, has been officially recognized and documented in the India Book of Records. This achievement stands as a testament to his unwavering dedication and diligent efforts.


In conclusion, Mr. T.L. Simon's journey as a Christian religious statue manufacturer based in Bangalore is a testament to the profound connection between faith and art. Through his exceptional craftsmanship, he has created masterpieces that inspire and uplift the souls of those who encounter them.
