The 182-metre tall Statue of Unity dedicated to Sardar Patel in Gujarat's Narmada district is becoming one of the country's top tourist spots and is now attracting about 30,000 people every day, senior state officials said Monday.
Kagan spent time at the viewing gallery, located at a height of 153 metres, and took in the expansive view offered from there of the Sardar Sarovar Dam as well as the Vindhya and Satpura mountain ranges, said officials.
"The statue is very impressive and I'm happy to learn the purpose behind its construction," Kagan said after the visit.
Kagan later visited Abhinay Gram Vikas, an NGO based in Rajpipla, which works for tribal welfare and rural development.
