On the birthday of Sardar Patel on October 31st, his figurine will stand even higher than the Statue Of Liberty at an altitude of 522 feet on an islet close to the Sardar Sarovar dam.

An 18 feet high figurine of the 'Bismarck of India' is set up in the Parliament of India. The design was picked by Prime Minister, Narendra Modi from there and the project was delivered to the Sutars.

While talking in detail on the origin of the statue, Ram Sutar said, “We have submitted the original design. Only the bronze casting has been done in China. China is known to create colossal statues of Lord Buddha so they have huge foundries there. We had to complete the project as early as possible, therefore, only the enlargement process has been done there.”

“Setting up a foundry as large as the one in China would have required a lot of time, infrastructure, arrangements, machinery. Therefore, the computer scanning and 3D imaging technique was used to enlarge the figure in China.”
