Worlds Tallest Statue the “Statue of Unity”, Twice the Height of “Statue of Liberty”- A Project by India
A magnum opus that has never been attempted before, that is more than just mere salutations, and is much more than just another architectural or engineering marvel.
Double the height of New York’s Statue of Liberty, five times taller than Rio De Janeiro’s Christ the Redeemer, the world’s tallest memorial, the Statue of Unity will be one-an-a–half times taller than the Sardar Sarovar Dam, and as tall as a 60-storied building.
As the largest statue in the world at 182 meters it was only natural that the location for the monument should also befit it and what could be a better site than the Sardar Sarovar itself.
The Statue of Unity would be nestled in the foothills of Satpura ranges and 3 Kms downstream from the Dam on the Narmada River on Sadhu bet. The project will see the setting up of research centres in subjects close to the Sardar’s heart- agriculture, water, environment, biotechnology and tribal welfare. With hi-tech research institutes, tribal universities and interpretation centres, the expanse will blossom into a “Knowledge Hub”.
Standing in the midst of 12 kms long artificially created waterbody and accessed by boat, the 360O observation deck of the Statue of Unity at a height of 400 feet will enable visitors to get a panoramic view of the of the Sardar Sarovar dam and its beautiful natural surroundings of the Vindhya and Satpura mountain range.
Just like Sardar Patel had brought together a fragmented nation and carved it into one singular, united entity, similarly the entire country will join forces and rally behind this grand, imposing structure. For, it is only with the efforts of the nation’s 120 crore people that this glorious dream will be realized.
To ensure that the project receives undivided administrative focus; SSNNL has formed a purpose specific society – the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Rashtriya Ekta Trust (SVPRET), ably guided by Honorable Chief Minister Narendra Modi.
To supervise and help execute a project of such vast stature, Turner Project Management India Limited (TPMI) — the consultant company that overlooked the building of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai — the world’s tallest building, has been engaged as the Project Management Consultant through a process of international bidding.
STATUE OF UNITY
The world’s tallest statue.
Ek Bharat, Shresth Bharat.
