More tourists visit Gujarat's Statue of Unity than Statue of Liberty: Official
Sardar Patel's Statue of Unity has been drawing more tourists than the Statue of Liberty located in the United State. With this, Gujarat's Kevadia, where the Statue of Unity is located, has emerged as a family holiday destination of international standard with a children nutrition park, Arogya Van, and camping and river rafting facilities, top officials said.
Described as a 'must-visit' place by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the town, nestled amid Satpura and Vindhayachal ranges along the banks of the Narmada river, has a number of small and big tourist spots.
Gujarat's Additional Chief Secretary Rajiv Gupta was quoted as saying that it was PM Modi's vision to develop this place as a model tourist destination for the entire family.
