Gandhinagar is the capital of the Gujarat and largest city in the state. The history of the city dates back to 13th century when the region was part of King Pethasinh of Pethapur’s rule. The year 1960 was an important year in the making of the city as Bombay was split and the country had two different states, Gujarat and Maharashtra.
Gandhinagar is situated 23 km away from Ahmedabad and 464 km away from Mumbai. The city has been divided into 30 sectors and each sector boasts its own shopping mall, school, community centre, health centre etc. There are parks, and recreational areas that sprawl along the water bodies and which also eventually grant the city a green-city atmosphere.
Thousands of people flock to the city to see the Akshardham temple. In past there have been plans to turn the city into a complete Indian enterprise as Gujarat is also the birthplace of the father of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi.
