Mahatma Gandhi Statue at Marina Beach

Posted by
Chennai City (Chennai, India) on 4 May 2013 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

The bronze statue of Mahatma Gandhi on the Marina Beach is regarded as one of the landmarks in Chennai. This black structure (statue), erected on a 12-ft-high pedestal, was unveiled by Jawaharlal Nehru (then Prime Minister of India) in 1959. The statue was sculpted by Debi Prasad Roy Chowdhry (who also sculpted Labour statue at Marina).

Mahatma Gandhi was one of the leader of the Indian Independence movement and was referred to as the ‘Father of the Nation’. He was one of the first leaders in the world to use Non-violence as the chief means to fight for justice. He discouraged violence in every form and led a very simple life, himself.
