Lets begins my story :
Initially I was planning for Goa trip as mini vacation but when i told my friends about my Goa trip they said that instead of Goa trip you can visit statue of unity as its the tallest statue in the world and its one of the best and unique place in India.
Then i did some research on statue of Unity and found it intresting place and that's how I made my mind to visit this place.
I was travelling solo to this place but i would suggest to have a group of friends as it will be more fun.
Basically I am from Mumbai and I made a decison of travelling by train as it's just 6hrs.
