Statue Of Unity: a proposed 182 metre tall memorial to Vallabhbhai Jhaverbhai Patel (1875 – 1950), a founding member of the Indian National Congress and a leader of his country’s struggle for independence.

Currently under construction at Sadhu-Bet Island in the Narmada district of Gujarat, India, the monument (twice the height of the Statue Of Liberty) is due for completion in 2018.
