Overlooking the Sardar Sarovar Dam, there stands the Statue of Unity – world’s tallest statue on a river island near Vadodara. Flaunting the height of 182 m, the statue is an iconic landmark and one of the best places to visit in Gujarat. A tribute to the first Deputy Prime Minister of India, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, the effigy is expected to boost Gujarat tourism.
Interestingly, the statue has been meticulously designed using sophisticated state of the art technologies. Other attractions of the Statue of Unity that await to be explored are the Shrestha Bharat Bhavan – a 3-star hotel and a Museum & Audio Visual Gallery.
Besides these, a Laser, Light and Sound Show is sure to make your Gujarat trip memorable. Marveling at the panoramic views from a viewing gallery perched at a height of 153m is undoubtedly an enthralling experience. One of the interesting things to note about the Statue of Unity is that the postures, expression and pose justify the confidence, dignity, kindness and strong will exuded by the ‘Iron Man of India’.
There is surely something special about the Statue of Unity that it has maintained to lure lakhs of tourists since its inauguration. The Count is still on! So, when are you planning to visit Gujarat to marvel at the Statue of Unity?
