The Making of Memorial

The visionary Honorable Chief Minister of Gujarat, Shri Narendra Modi, selected the design for the memorial from a national level design competition.

The project was conceived and completed within a period of one year, at the cost of approximately Rs. 6.5 crores through constant guidance and valuable inputs from Shri Varun N. Maira, I. A. S, Additional Chief Secretary and Director General of the Memorial Society.

Shree Shyamji Krishna Varma Memorial Society was registered under the Societies Registration Act, 1860 on 8th March, 2006 at Bhuj. Collector, Kachchh has allotted the Society 89.86 acres of land in Maska-Gundiali villages of Mandvi taluka.

Shri Narendra Modi, Hon. Chief Minister of Gujarat laid the foundation stone for the Memorial complex on 4th October, 2009. In a short span of 14 months, the Memorial has been completed with a built-up area of 56,318 sq. ft. (5,217 sq. mtrs.)

The Memorial was dedicated to the nation on 13th December, 2010 by the Hon. Chief Minister of Gujarat. A replica of India House in London has been constructed as a part of the Memorial complex. All areas of the Memorial are handicap friendly.
