    The height of the statue is more than double the Statue of Liberty which stands at 93 metres off the coast of New York City and four times that of the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro

      2.'In the world, people talk about America's Statue of Liberty. We want to make a statue of Sardar Patel at twice the size of the Statue of Liberty,' then Gujarat chief minister Narendra Damodardas Modi declared in 2013 when he laid the foundation stone for the monument

            4.Iron used in the construction of the statue came from farmers in the region, a symbolic contribution highlighting the farmers' participation in the tribute to the Sardar

                        8.A Sardar Patel museum has been created at the base of the statue. The museum will showcase 40,000 documents and 2,000 photographs on India's first home minister's life.
                        Adjacent to the statute will be located a three-star 128-room hotel.
                        The Gujarat government expects over 15,000 tourists to visit the monument daily.

                          9.Some critics say the statue is an example of Modi and his Bharatiya Janata Party's effort to appropriate a popular national figure, a leader, incidentally, of the Indian National Congress.
                          For a government that promotes 'Make In India', the bronze panels for the statue were cast at a foundry in China. Scores of Chinese workers were reportedly spotted at the construction site.

                            10.Ironically, when he was alive, the Sardar was against the building of statues and memorials to glorify leaders.
