India unveils the tallest statue in the world, twice the size of Lady Liberty



His big toe is about the size of a basketball hoop.

You would have to climb 182 meters or 597 feet into the sky to reach the top of the Statue of Unity, the tallest statue in the world, and a tribute to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, an Indian leader of independence, who was crucial to uniting a broken country was.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi was on Wednesday – Mr. Patel's birthday – known as National Unity Day – to unveil the mammoth statue that looks over green hills and the Narmada River in the western state of Gujarat.

For the perspective: It is almost twice as high as the Statue of Liberty, which reaches 305 feet including the pedestal. Without her pedestal, more than five Lady Libertys would be upside down to reach the head of the statue (or four, if you count the tip of their torch).

This equates to nearly two vertical American football fields, minus the end zones.
