An ardent patriot who was determined to unity 562 princely states with the mainstream India after the British Raj came to an end.
A great administrator who established the volatile condition of a newly freed country. An illustrious man who led the path of unity and became an eternal icon for the entire nation.
Since the memory of a man who personified the spirit of Indian union must be as inspiring as himself for all future generations, we are creating the STATUE OF UNITY- an eternal embodiment of the life, dreams and accomplishments of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, to evoke remembrance and inspiration in the most unique manner possible.
AN ICONIC 182 METERS STATUE that's a tribute to the Iron Man of India, is to be built at the Sadhu- Bet Island, approximately 3.5 kms south of Sardar Sarovar Dam at Kevidia in the Narmada district of Gujarat. This inspiring memorial site, with a number of edu- tainment components, is between the Vindhyachal and Satpuda Ranges rising weir Narmada River, impounded by Garudeshwar, the Sardar Sarovar Dam and the town of Kevadia. The majesty of this grand monument will be enhanced by a picturesque backdrop. Its unique location will prove to be beneficial for Eco- tourism and regional development.
