Statue of Unity
Statue of Unity is a tribute to one of India’s finest statesmen and leaders -Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. Known as the Iron Man of India, Sardar achieved the inconceivable feat of uniting an independent India, which was scattered into over 500 princely states. Sardar convinced every one of the leaders of these states to join the Republic of India; and gave life to India as we know it today.
Statue of Unity Movement aims to connect every Indian with this cause, just the way Sardar did. The intent is to bring back the values for which Sardar stood – Unity, Good Governance, & Grassroots development.
Statue of Unity will be the world’s tallest statue, standing at 182 mts, nearly twice as tall as the Statue of Liberty. This will be the world’s biggest symbol of unity, and will remind the world of how Sardar united a nation as diverse as India.
- Sardar was also known as the farmers’ leader. Within the SoU Movement, over 600,000 Indian farmers from nearly 300,000 villages will be able to donate a small piece of used farm iron as a tribute to their leader. Over three months, 5000 tonnes of iron will be collected and assembled at the location of the statue – Kevadia. This iron will be used in the construction of the Statue Complex.
The World’s largest petition will be created in order to highlight what Good Governance means in today’s world. It is meant to be signed by over 20 Million people across the world.
