The 88 meter sculpture of Yang Asha, the largest Miao goddess in the world, was taken by netizens. Some netizens questioned that Jianhe county was still a state-level poverty-stricken county when it invested a lot of money to create the sculpture, and it only withdrew from the poverty-stricken county sequence in March 2020. If the funds are used to get rid of poverty, the county may be able to get rid of poverty earlier, which is a image project.

If you want to visit the statue, you need to pay 40 yuan to buy a ticket to Guangong Yiyuan. The only scenic spot inside is the statue. However, due to the huge statue, the effect of close viewing is not good, leading to the poor management of the scenic spot.

On July 10, this year, the worlds largest Guan Gong statue in Jingzhou, Hubei Province, is sinking, without planning permission and without fire inspection and acceptance. According to a report, on June 17, 2016, the Guangong Yiyuan Garden opened. Under the 48 meter high statue of Guan Gong, a two-story building, named the center of Guangong culture exhibition, was built.

The park is declared as a new landmark of Jingzhou tourism. Jingzhou wanted to play the card of Guangong culture and sing cultural tourism by borrowing the Yiyuan, but more than four years later, tourists and citizens did not buy it. Accompanied by the poor management, the Guangong cultural exhibition center has not passed the fire inspection and acceptance, and the foundation of Guangong statue is sinking.

The official account of WeChat in Jingzhou shows that there are many activities in the base of Guan Gong statue during the National Day holiday. Chen Degui, general manager of Jinglv group, said that he had just learned that the Ministry of housing and urban rural development had informed him of the matter. After receiving specific opinions, the company will actively implement the opinions of the superior and seriously rectify the situation.
