The winner of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel was the Modern Indian Bismarck, who led the welfare of farmers, over the Satyagrah of Kheda and Bardoli. He is known as the independent Indian architect, as he brought together all 562 princely nations to build a great Republic of India. Shri Narendra Modi decided to pay honorable respect to this great man, who has been cherished throughout the world for centuries. It’s the world’s tallest, greatest, and giant statue built in less than five years. This is a homage to Sardar Patel, the man who united India.
Not only meters and feet, but also in terms of academic, historical, national and spiritual values, will the statue stand high. My Dream is to build this place for all ages to come as a source of inspiration.

Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel
Sardar Vallabhbhai Pate was influenced by Mahatma Gandhi research and theory, Vallabhbhai Patel had already succeeded in practicing as a lawyer. In a civil nonviolent disobedience campaign against repressive policies enforced by the British Raj, the Kheda, Borsad and Bardoli peasants were subsequently united into Gujarat; in that capacity, he became one of the most prominent of Gujarat.
Patel organized the refugee relief for Punjaab and Delhi as the first Home Minister and Deputy Prime Minister of India, and he led the nation’s efforts to restore peace. Patel was responsible for creating a united India out of 565 semi-autonomous princely states and colonial colonies of the British period. Patel’s leadership, using open diplomacy supported by the option (and use) of military action, enabled nearly every princely state to join. He is also regarded as the “Patron Saint” of India’s government officers for setting up modern all-Indian service, celebrated as the Iron Man of India. Patel was also one of India’s leading advocates of free enterprise and property rights.
His key role in guiding the unification of India was just one of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel’s multi-faceted leaders. His pursuit of Suraaj, meaning good governance, as India’s first Home Minister and Indian’s first deputy prime minister, was also crucial for building India in the years of post-independence. Also focused on solidarity, it played a key role in mobilizing India’s farming community, and bringing different castes and cultures together in the struggles for independence.
