There seem to be so many Gandhi statues in India that makes none of them that unique. We saw ten or so just travelling from Kovalam to Chennai alone. Good to see the reverence though.

This is a prominent statue of Mahatma Gandhi on a high pedestal along the Marina Beach Road. The statue is very well made and captures the great man's humility very nicely.

Gandhi's statue is on Marina Beach. It's a nice statue, but that's it. If you're walking the area or the marina, it's worth stopping and taking a look. But that's it.
