The city of Gandhinagar, situated on the west bank of the Sabarmati River, is the state capital of Gujarat. Gandhinagar covers around 205 sq. km of area and is located just 25 km from another important city of Ahmedabad in Gujarat. It is a well-planned city, which is home to all the state administrative head offices of Gujarat. The destination is spacious, with beautiful architectural landmarks, including shopping centres, health centres, primary schools and both government and private housing. The beautiful Akshardham Temple is the key highlight for tourists visiting this city. 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
