Today, we visited The Statue of Unity, the world’s tallest statue, with a height of 182 meters, located near Kevadia in Gujarat, India. It depicts Indian statesman and independence activist Vallabhbhai Patel, who was the first deputy prime minister and home minister of independent India and an adherent of Mahatma Gandhi.
The statue was built to honor Patel’s role in the integration of the princely states of India following independence from British rule in 1947. The statue is located on an island in the Narmada river and is intended to symbolize the unity of the people of India as well as the single Union of India.
I found it to be one of the most impressive monuments I have visited. The entire experience is pretty high-tech, world-class, and done really well. Do check it out, if you happen to be in this part of the country. Here are a few visuals from our experience.
