Indian heritage has always been rich; the history, culture, architecture, and stories behind every aspect of it have many beautiful elements.
Gujarat is one such Indian state which has a bundle of treats to offer. This state is predominantly known to be the birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi, is home to Asiatic lions, and with its lip-smacking Gujarati cuisines, this cultural state of India has always stolen all our hearts.
Statue of Unity
Statue of Unity, located in the Kevadia colony is the latest wonder to be termed the tallest statue in the world. It is the statue of India’s first Deputy Prime Minister and well-known freedom fighter Shri. Sardar Vallabhai Patel. He was referred to as the ‘Iron man of India’ for his priceless contribution to the nation’s building and development.
He was known to be the sole reason for all the 562 princely states coming back together in India, back in the pre-independence period after the British. That is the reason behind the statue being named ‘Statue of Unity’ i.e a symbol of unity.
With intense hard work, planning, and precision for good 4 years, the 597 feet tall historical statue was constructed to perfection on the river Narmada. Its construction was decided in the year 2010 and the execution began in 2013 by Larsen & Toubro.
Shri. Ram. V. Sutar gets the credit for being the sculptor and designer of the statue. The Prime Minister of India, Shri. Narendra Modi inaugurated the statue on 31st October 2018, Sardar Patel’s 143rd birth anniversary.
