Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is on an official visit to Gujarat , inaugurated the country's largest  Maze Garden and a Miyawaki Forest in Ekta Nagar on 30 October 2022..

The Maze Garden and Miyawaki forest has been developed around the Statue of Unity. The Statue of Unity dedicated to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel is the world's tallest statue (182 meters).

The country’s largest Maze Garden has been built in the shape of Yantra and spread over three acres with a pathway of 2,100 meters. The location of the maze garden was originally a dumping site for debris which has now turned into a verdant landscape.

Miyawaki forest 

The Miyawaki Forest is named after the technique developed by a Japanese botanist and ecologist Dr Akira Miyawaki to plant saplings of various species that are planted close to each other which develops into a dense urban forest. The growth of plants is ten times faster using this method and as a result, the forest developed is thirty times denser. Through the Miyawaki method, a forest can be developed in just two to three years while it takes at least 20 to 30 years through the traditional method.
