THE IRON MAN OF INDIA
He was the man who saw through the diabolical strategy of the British and through his diplomacy and tact overthrew their motives, uniting the disintegrated collection of many small and big princely states. A gem of a freedom fighter who was born into a simple farmer's family, he was the one who was instrumental in mobilizing the farmer community to join the freedom struggle. He not only pursued Swaraj, but laid equal emphasis on Su-raaj; i.e Good Governance. Sardar Patel's contribution to the inception of a Modern United India is invaluable truly making him the ‘Son of the Soil’.

TRIBUTE The life of a man, as great as Sardar Patel, is something that India cannot simply afford to fade away into pages of history. To keep him alive in the hearts of the generations to come is the only true tribute that he can be commemorated with. It is thus in order to make Sardar Patel a source of inspiration for every generation, that such a massive project is being undertaken.

DAM

LOCATION But as becoming as the statue is, equally befitting should the location be, so it was decided to construct this statue at the Narmada Dam.
The grand monument will be placed directly facing the Narmada Dam at a distance of 3.2 km at the Sadhu Bet. As the world's tallest statue positioned on one of the world's largest dam sites, this statue will be a wonderful sight, nestled at the foothills of the Satpura ranges and garlanded by a range of mountains. Standing tall amidst fresh waters and greenery the majesty of this grand monument will be enhanced by its picturesque surroundings.

EXECUTION

The entire monument will built on a Public Private Partnership model with most of the funds coming in by way of public contribution.
