Kankaria Lake

, Ahmedabad

An artificial lake dates back to the time of Sultans, Kankaria in the south east region of Ahmedabad is a crowd puller in recent times. It was constructed by Sultan Qutab-ud-Din in 1451 AD. Formerly known as Hauj-e-Qutub, this lake was the bathing ghat of late Sultans and their queens. Mughal Emperor Jahangir and his empress wife Noor Jahan frequently visited the lake.

Nagina Wadi, an island garden set in the midst of the lake is just picturesque that adds the bewitching beauty of the lake. One of the banks is connected to this island by virtue of a pathway. Another interesting pass time in the lakeside is the boating facilities. Adventurous lots and fun lovers can engage themselves with this water sport. The lake witness’s large crowd in weekends, especially in the evenings of weekends. One would not get a better place to watch sunset than Kankaria Lake. Children can enjoy the facilities in the children’s park and the adjoining zoo.
