The engineering for this statue has been finished in 33 months. The height of the Statue of Unity is 182-meter which is double as compared to the statue of liberty in New York. It is attracting a mammoth number of tourists within days of its unveiling.
This project was handed over to Larsen & Turbo at a whopping an amount of 2,989 Crore, who started its construction on 31st October 2018. The company promised that the project will be finished within a period of 42 months without any escalation of fuel, labor, and material.
The Sardar Vallabhai Patel Statue was first announced at a press conference by Mr.Modi on 7th October 2010 to commensurate his 10th year running as Gujarat CM. In order to finish this project, the state had asked farmers to donate their used farm equipment to provide iron needed for the statue of Sardar Patel. Eventually, around 5000 tonnes of iron was collected, although it was no use for the statue as previously thought it was used in the construction of the structure.
The visitors will be able to reach a 135-meter high gallery and enjoy the breathtaking views of the Narmada dam, the valley, and the pilgrimage site of Garudeshwar. This gallery can accommodate around 200 people at a time.
Around 3000 tourists will be allowed to visit the place every day. The hospitality industry is taking the benefit of this place.
