Information about the Nikola Tesla Monument which was unveiled at Niagara Falls (Canadian side) on July 9, 2006
A bronze monument of Nikola Tesla was unveiled on July 9, 2006 at the most beautiful place in the world, the Canadian side of Niagara Falls in Queens Victoria Park.
Tesla's monument at Niagara Falls is a constant reminder of the great scientific achievements of Nikola Tesla. Tesla with George Westinghouse built the first hydroelectric power plant at Niagara Falls in 1895, which supplied electricity to the city of Buffalo and many industrial centers.
Tesla is depicted in his actual height and dressed in an outfit accustom to his era.

Budapest in 1882.

Tesla is holding in his hand a stick which he used to draw in Budapest Park soil, his design of the rotating magnetic field. Tesla discovered the principle of Rotating Magnetic Field in Budapest in 1882 while walking with his friend through the Central Park in Budapest.

A gracious moment in the park of Budapest, 1882
Tesla's idea of rotating magnetic field came to him instantly while he was reciting stances from the German poet Goethe's Faust in Budapest Park in 1882 in a gracious moment of excitement. Tesla drew a picture of the rotating magnetic field in the ground of the park and showed it to his friend. Tesla was trying to solve the puzzle of Rotating Magnetic Field and eliminate the commentators' in Gram's electric machines for many years. Suddenly the solution for Rotating Magnetic Field came to him this very moment.
In this painting of 1829-31, Goethe is shown dictating to his secretary the second part of the Faust. The small and simply furnished study room, which he called 'humble quarters', suited his inner creative life. By the time of this portrait Goethe was already a world figure, a man of unique character and abilities who had a widespread influence on his own times.
Rotating Magnetic Field is a principle discovery in physics and Tesla adapted his concept of Rotating Magnetic Field to produce polyphase alternating current (AC) electricity, which is lighting the globe today.

The principle of Rotating Magnetic Field is use for construction of the Tesla Induction Motor which is consider "one of the 10 greatest discoveries of all time".
