Dandi March Statue

Eleven Statues


A set of eleven statues erected near India Gate, New Delhi to pay tribute to a group Indian freedom fighters and social reformers. The sculpture depicts the famous Dandi March led by Mahatma Gandhi in 1931 against oppressive salt taxes imposed by the British regime. The eleven figures depicted in the sculpture are shown to represent the different religious and caste communities in India, all led by Gandhi as part of a non-violent protest against imperial oppression. Its position near the erstwhile Viceroy House symbolizes the show of unity against colonialism.
