Sardar Sarovar Dam is close to Statue of Unity and if you have ticket for whole tour, you can board AC bus from one of the gates of Statue of Unity & go to the viewpoint which offers great views of Sardar Sarovar Dam. Above photograph shows the view of bus interiors.

Above photograph shows the grand view of Sardar Sarovar Dam. This view reminded me of Bhakhra Dam which is Himachal Pradesh state of India. But there is a major difference. No one is allowed to stop near the Dam. There is a good stretch of road which is monitored by security personnel. We were wondering why there is no security concern at Sardar Sarovar Dam and why so many tourists are allowed to go close to the dam view-point.

The Sardar Sarovar Dam is built on the Narmada river near Navagam, Gujarat in India. The foundation stone of the project was laid out by Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and this dam has been in news for various reasons in the past. Narmada Bachao campaign was one of the major one against this because of displacement issues.

Between Statue of Unity and Sardar Sarovar Dam, Gujrat Tourism has developed a valley of flowers which overlooks both dam and the statue. All these 3 things are in radius of 4-5 kilometers. It was so fantastic to see Gujrat Tourism developing this area in a very good way and in future I am sure they would be able to manage good amount of footfall with ease and not creating traffic chaos on roads around these places.
