India is now home to the world’s tallest statue — Statue of Unity– and with its whopping height of 182 meters, it has garnered considerable attention across the globe. Now, in a picture shared by Planet Lab, world’s leading commercial satellite network, it showed that the giant statue of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel is visible from the space.
The Rs 2,989 crore project took 42 months, and round-the-clock work by 3,400 labourers and 250 engineers to complete the giant structure, which is twice the height of the Statue of Liberty in the US. Sharing a photo on Twitter of the satellite image of the statue built near the Sardar Sarovar Dam in Narmada district, the company wrote, “At 597 feet, India’s Statue of Unity is now the tallest statue in the world and clearly seen from space!” The Oblique SkySat image was captured on November 15, 2018, they added.
