statue-of-unity-india-2

The controversial Statue of Unity dedicated to India’s first deputy prime minister, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, was unveiled today at a remote corner of India’s westernmost state of Gujarat. Standing 182 meters tall the gargantuan statue is now the tallest in the world surpassing the Spring Temple Buddha in China, which was until now the world's biggest statue at 128 meters. The base upon which the Statue of Unity stands itself is 58 meters tall, taking the total height of the statue to nearly a quarter of a kilometer.

The statue stands on a small river island called Sadhu Bet overlooking the isolated Sardar Sarovar Dam. A bridge connects the base of the statue to the mainland. When the 420 million-dollar-project is finally completed, there will be a visitor center, a museum inside the base of the statue, a memorial garden, an amusement park, and even a hotel to accommodate tourists that the statue is expected to draw.
