There could not be a more grand or apt location for the Statue of Unity than the Sardar Sarovar Dam on the Narmada River. The monument will stand near the Narmada Dam, which has also been named after the Iron Man of India, at a distance of 3.2km at the Sadhu Bet.
The dam itself is considered to be one of the largest structures standing at a height of 138feet. Rising from amid one of the most revered rivers of India, nestled in the foothills of mountainous terrain and surrounded by bountiful natural beauty, Sadhu Bet is an idyllic location for the proposed statue.
Located in what is already a favoured tourist spot, especially in the monsoons when the Sardar Sarovar Dam overflows in all its magnanimity, the Statue of Unity promises to be one of the most visited tourist spots not only of the nation but also the world.
