Christ of Vũng Tàu
Christ the King, of Vũng Tàu (Vietnamese: Tượng Chúa Kitô Vua) is a statue of Jesus, standing on Mount Nho in Vũng Tàu, Bà Rịa–Vũng Tàu Province, Đông Nam Bộ, Vietnam. The Vietnam Catholic Association built the statue in 1974 and it was completed in 1993.
It is 32 metres (105 ft) high, standing on a 4 metres (13 ft) high platform, for a 36 metres (118 ft) total monument height with two outstretched arms spanning 18.3 metres (60 ft). There is a 133-step staircase inside the statue.
A statue of "Vietnamese Jesus" was included in the movie 22 Jump Street, which resembles the one on Mount Nho. This continued the joke used in the first film, a statue of "Korean Jesus".
