Statue of Unity, Gujarat

Been there recently?

Statue of Unity, the tallest statue in the world, was unveiled on October 31, 2018, in Kevadia, Gujarat, against the dramatic Satpura and Vindhyachal hills. The 182-metre (approximately 600-foot) statue honours Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, the chief architect of India’s independence. The enormous monument stands over the Narmada River as a tribute to India ‘from the people of Gujarat’ to the ruler who prioritised the welfare of the populace. The expansive Sardar Sarovar dam and the Narmada river basin are both visible from the Statue of Unity. The statue is located on Sadhu Bet Island, which is connected to the mainland by a long bridge. The colossal statue almost seems to pierce the skyline as it is silhouetted against the Vindhya and Satpura mountain ranges. India’s “Iron Man,” Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, is memorialised by this colossal statue in the Narmada delta. He towers over the surroundings as if watching over the country he helped gain independence. Sardar Patel is shown in his signature plain garb and in a walking pose. One can see the statue from as far as 8 kilometres away, which is approximately 100 times the height of a person who is five and a half feet tall. It was built in a record time of 33 months by engineering giants Larsen and Tourbo.
