Travellers can soon enjoy homestays around the iconic Statue of Unity in Gujarat. The administration of Narmada district is planning to introduce homestay facility for tourists visiting the world’s tallest statue, located in Kevadia Colony.

A total of 116 houses have been identified in 22 villages around the Statue of Unity, where 252 rooms will be renovated as homestay accommodations for the tourists. The houses were shortlisted based on whether they are pucca houses and whether there is an extra or spare room in the house which can be utilized for the purpose. The condition of pucca houses was kept by the authorities as it will make the renovation process easy.

Facilities including construction or renovation of rooms as well as washrooms at each house, is estimated to cost between Rs 2 lakh to Rs 2.5 lakh each. As soon as the home stay facility becomes operational, all the details will be made available on the website for the public.
