Visit Statue of Unity at This Cost
Statue of Unity has already become the most discussing topic these days. Some are praising PM Modi for the decision for bringing pride to India, while some are criticizing him for spending a lot of money on the statue, while there are many critical problems in India that are to be solved.
Between all these confusions, finally, Statue of Unity, the world’s largest statue, which is dedicated to the Iron Man of India, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, has been unveiled two days back. This is already opened to the public from Yesterday (November 1). With the height of 182 metres, Statue of Unity is about four times as tall as Statue of Liberty.
Statue of Unity was constructed at a cost of Rs 2989 crore, which has surprised everyone. PM Modi said that the statue will be a reminder to the nation of Sardar Patel's courage to thwart conspiracies to disintegrate India. The statue is on a river-island facing the Narmada Dam near Rajpipla, which is 100 kilometres southeast of the city of Vadodara.
The statue complex will be open to the people every day from 9 am to 6 pm and the tickets are available both online and offline. The tickets are available from this Saturday and people can book them at soutickets.com.

Using this ticket, you can get entry to the observation deck, valley of flowers, the Sardar Patel memorial, museum and audio-visual gallery, the Statue of Unity site and the Sardar Sarovar dam.

There is a 3-star hotel, a shopping centre and a research centre at the complex. Two elevators help people watch the statue up to the chest of the statue to a viewing gallery. The gallery can accommodate 200 visitors at a time and also offers stunning views of the surrounding area.
