A DAY TRIP TO THE STATUE OF UNITY
Well, it was such a magnificent experience to visit the Statue of Unity. I still cannot forget the first time I had seen the Statue of Unity. It is the Tallest Statue in the world. A magnificent and huge Statue with 182 meters in height. I will be sharing my experience for A Day Trip to Statue of Unity.
It is a statue of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel who had played a significant role for the independence of India. He was the first Home Minister and Deputy Prime Minister of India after the country got Independence from the British.
The Statue is the symbol of Unity and resembles the country which is a strong example of Unity in Diversity. A country that has people belonging from different religions, speaking different languages and having different cultures, but still, everyone stays in harmony or Unity.
Now I will be sharing with you my experience of visiting the magnificent Statue of Unity in a day which is located in a small village Kevadia in the Gujarat State of India.
