Statue Of Unity

Hon'ble Prime Minister Vision

The Statue will stand high, not just in meters and feet, but much more in terms of academic, historical, national and spiritual values. My vision is to develop the place as a source of inspiration for ages to come.

With the making of this iconic structure, the overall project area is expected to grow through several activities and initiatives including infrastructure for entertainment, education and research activities.

Considering that the location of the Statue falls under the jurisdiction of Narmada district that is predominantly tribal, much importance will be given to the issues of tribal culture and economy of the area to be included in and around the Statue.

Hon'ble Chief Minister Vision

The Vision

Like many nations of the world, the time has come for India to pay a befitting tribute to the great men of its soil and immortalize their history. That is the vision behind building the largest statue in the world to commemorate Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. It is only through building a structure of such enormity that we will be able get close to commemorating the immense hard-work it took for him to achieve the unification of a disintegrated and scattered group of 565 princely states with India.

While Hon'ble Prime Minister is the spirit behind the project.

Hon'ble Chief Minister is the force behind its speedy implementation.

Decisive steps taken to speedily implement the project:

  • On 29th September 2016, a ground breaking ceremony, for the foundation of "Memorial & Visitor Center".


The Mission

Since the memory of a man who personified the spirit of the Indian union must be as inspiring as he was, and preserved for all future generations, the Statue of Unity will stand as an eternal embodiment of the life, dreams and accomplishments of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, and evoke remembrance and inspiration in the most unique manner possible.

Statue of Unity will stand as a tribute to Sardar Patel, who was

  • • An ardent patriot determined to unite 565 princely states with mainstream India after the British Raj came to an end
  • • A great administrator who stabilized the volatile condition of a newly freed country
  • • An illustrious statesman who led the country on the path of unity and became an eternal icon for people
