During the 13th century, the Shertha town was ruled by King Pethasinh of Pethapur. After his death, this land was used by the Sultanate of Patan as a battle ground. Sultan Ahmed Shah moved his capital from Patan to a newly built city of Ahmedabad.
This new state capital was named after Mahatma Gandhi and the foundation stone was laid in 1965. Thereafter, in 1971, the state capital was shifted from Ahmedabad to the new city of Gandhinagar. The new state capital was built on the land which was once part of the old Pethapur State.
After Indian Independence, the erstwhile state of Bombay was divided into two states, namely Gujarat and Maharashtra, on 1st May 1960.
The best time to visit the destination is from October to march
