Statue of Unity-Sardar Vallabhai Patel Statue

​The tallest statue in the world is none other than in India! The statue of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel would be inaugurated by our honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 31st October 2018 which is the birth anniversary of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. The statue is also called statue of unity and the purpose of the statue is that the people should understand the life and values of this great man and inculcate them in their lives. Not many of us know that we have United India only because of this great man!

Where is it located:

This gigantic 182 meters long statue is located at Sadhu Bet island on Narmada River in Gujarat.What to see: Apart from the huge statue, the museum on the life of Sardar Patel is also constructed at the base. The audio visual will show the life and times of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. The laser and light and sound show will also depict his efforts on unification of India. There would be various entertainment and food options available at the base of the statue. There is also a panoramic lift constructed alongside the statue which will take you to the viewing gallery to give a wonderful view of the entire project!

Where to stay:

The state government has constructed a 52-room three-star hotel called the Shreshta Bharat Bhavan. This hotel has a beautiful architecture and the view of the beautiful river! Two tent cities with 250 tents are currently under construction.
