    Mahatma Gandhi Statue

    by Donna_in_India Updated Jan 5, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Located on the Promenade this statue of Mahatma Gandhi was built by sculptor Roy Choudhary. It is surrounded by eight exquisitely carved monolithic granite 17th century pillars that were brought from Gingee - a fort about 70 kms from Pondicherry - after the capture of the fort.

    The statue of Gandhi stands 13 feet high. The entire structure is at least twice that high and is one of the nicest monuments of Gandhi I have seen. It is especially striking when you see the statue and pillars from a distance.
