The world’s tallest statue is the Statue of Unity, located in Gujarat, India. Standing at 182 meters, or 597 feet, it is the tallest statue in the world and the tallest statue of a human figure.
The Statue of Unity was built to commemorate the life and legacy of India’s first Deputy Prime Minister, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. The statue was designed by Indian sculptor Ram V. Sutar and was built by the Larsen and Toubro group. It was unveiled by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in October 2018.
The Statue of Unity is made up of two parts. The first is the statue itself, which stands at 182 meters or 597 feet tall. The statue is made from steel and bronze, and is supported by a cement-and-steel structure. The statue is also surrounded by a large artificial lake, which was constructed to improve the landscape of the area.
The second component of the Statue of Unity is the viewing gallery, which stands at 153 meters or 502 feet above the ground. It is the world’s tallest viewing gallery and offers visitors a stunning view of the Narmada River and the surrounding area. The gallery is enclosed in a steel structure that is painted in yellow and red.
The Statue of Unity is an impressive feat of engineering and design, and a fitting memorial to the legacy of Sardar Patel. It stands as a testament to the spirit of unity and progress that Patel embodied, and it is a reminder to all of us of the importance of standing together.
