About Chandola Lake

Chandola Lake was built by the wife of then Mughal Sultan of Ahmedabad Tajn Khan Nari Ali. It was constructed as a reservoir at that time and converted into a lake today. It serves its purpose as a part of the Kharicut Canal Scheme. It has greatly served the needs of the local people in terms of irrigation and industrial uses. Chandola Lake serves as a great tourist attraction with plenty of room for leisurely strolls and sightseeing. One can also spot some cormorants, painted storks and spoonbills here. In 1930, Gandhiji also stopped here in the middle of the Salt March. Adjacent to the lake is the tomb of Shah Alam, the domes of which were adorned with gold and precious stones by Asaf Khan, brother of the Empress Noor Jahan. The tomb has three huge domes and eighteen smaller domes that were carved by the master architect Saleh Badakshi in the days of yore.
