Statue of Unity View Gallery

Statue of Unity View Gallery

Statue of unity is the tallest statue in the world and it was inaugurated 31st October 2018. It is built between Satpura and Vindhyachal hills in Kevadia, Gujarat. Statue of Unity has a big beautiful garden compound with a cafeteria area and is surrounded by the Narmada river. This statue has 55 plus floors with an air-conditioner museum on the life of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel but my favorite is the 55th floor because it's the heart of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and known as the Statue of Unity View gallery.  

Before visiting here I just saw the videos of this view gallery on youtube. That time I decided to visit this place for you and capture the panoramic view of Narmada river , Sardar Sarovar Dam and Satpura and Vindhyachal from the Statue of Unity View Gallery. 

During visiting view gallery I thought it's taking at least 10-20 min to reach 55th floor but lift is too much fast and it just taken 10-20 second to reach this height. Then I was amazed because of the beautiful panoramic view. This is the value for money place in the Statue of Unity, so don’t miss this place during your tour. 

But I want to share another advanced experience touching the big legs of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel because in the statue 50% used Iron and I feel proud of our engineers that time . From this place you can capture beautiful selfies and reels with your friends & family.


Another suggestion to you,  Don’t miss laser light show because this show describe the life of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel this time I missed it because of my train timing issue and its not possible one day trip if you visit through public transport, but next time I will cover this show in my tour.

Sardar Sarovar Dam

Sardar Sarovar Dam is one of the oldest built on Narmada river and second largest concrete dam in the world regarding volume and size.Its the main source of water in the four Indian states that are Gujarat, Maharashtra , Rajasthan and Madhypradesh. Sardar Sarovar Dam height is 163 m and  known as concrete gravity dam,and its beautiful tourist destination in Navagam near the town of Kevadiya, Narmada District. 

This is my second experience of visiting Sardar Sarovar Dam and this time a lot has changed and the area looks developed.I came here 7+ years ago, at that time the Statue of Unity was under construction and there was only one tourist spot in Kevadiya which is Sardar Sarovar Dam. Now there are too many tourist places in Kevadiya but Sardar Sarovar Dam oldest tourist destination near Statue of Unity, so you must visit here during your tour.
