Gandhinagar is the capital of the expansive state of Gujarat, an integral part of Western India. The greenest capital of India, Gandhinagar, is known for its serenity and is laden with a plethora of tourist spots which will make your journey a memorable one.
The non-sectarian Adalaj Trimandir & the Swaminarayan Akshardham Temple with its first-of-its-kind laser water show are the two internationally famous temples in Gandhinagar. Indroda Nature Park, world’s second largest dinosaur eggs hatchery, is tailor made for all nature lovers. It is particularly popular among children since the park inhabits innumerable species of reptiles, birds, massive skeletons of sea mammals, an amphitheatre, and a zoo. Moreover, serving the same purpose, there is a dedicated Children’s Park in Gandhinagar which is an ideal spot for family picnics and get-togethers.
If you visit the city during Uttarayan, the kite festival, you would witness the cheery and high spirited masses celebrating the change of season from winters to summers. In terms of kite flying, this festival is synonymous with the Independence Day. Navratri, Gujarat Sthapna Divas and Vasant Utsav are some noteworthy festivals celebrated religiously. The natives are highly welcoming, and hospitality is their inherited cultural trait which extends to the service offered at hotels in Gandhinagar.
Apart from cultural, natural, and historical must-visit places, the city also houses the widely renowned educational institutions like the National Institute of Design, Gujarat National Law University, National Institute of Fashion Technology and the Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information and Communication Technology. Gandhinagar is, thus, a must-explore tourist destination for all nature, culture, and history lovers!
