Statue of Unity

Statue of Unity

The Statue of Unity is the most precious gem of Gujarat Tourism. Created as a memorial to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, the statue is located in Gujarat’s Narmada district. Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel is famed as the Iron Man of India, who served as the first home minister of independent India. It is the world’s tallest statue (about 600 feet) and located about 200 km from Ahmedabad.

 

The Statue of Unity is almost 100 feet taller than China’s Spring Temple Buddha, and almost twice as high as the Statue of Liberty in New York. Although lying in a remote corner, away from the central Gujarat, the statue attracts tourists from all over India and world.

 

Statue of Unity Overview

This enormous statue was completed in 33 months. The foundation of the statue was laid down in 2013, and construction was completed in mid-October 2018; and the inaugural ceremony was held on 31 October 2018, presided over by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The statue has been described as a tribute to Indian engineering skills.

 

Sardar Patel was credited with uniting all 562 princely states in pre-independent India to build the Republic of India; therefore, the name of the statue. The date for the inauguration of the statue (October 31, 2018) also marks the 143rd birth anniversary of Sardar Patel.

 

Attractions around

Besides the Statue of Unity, there are several other tourist attractions around including the valley of flowers, natural beauty of the Satpura and Vindhyachal hill ranges around the Sardar Sarobar dam on the mighty Narmada River.
