PM happy over listing of Statue of Unity in 'World's 100 Greatest places'

The statue is located in a remote stretch in Narmada district, with the nearest city Vadodora being about 100 kilometres away and Ahmedabad, more than 200 kilometres away.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today expressed his joy over the listing of the Statue of Unity in Gujarat in TIME magazine's ''World's 100 Greatest Places of 2019''. He said the 182-metre statue of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel attracted 34,000 visitors in a single day recently.

"Excellent news vis-a-vis the ''Statue of Unity''- it finds a spot in the @TIME 100 greatest places 2019 list. And, a few days back, a record 34,000 people visited the site in a single day. Glad that it is emerging as a popular tourist spot," PM Modi tweeted.
