About Kankaria Lake

This expansive lake has-believe it or not-34 sides. It is located on the southeastern side of Ahmedabad City. According to popular legend, Mughal emperor Shah Jahan often visited the lake with his wife Empress Noor Jahan. There is also a magnificent island summer palace located within the boundary of the lake. The lake makes a picturesque spot for picnics and sightseeing. Adjacent to the lake is a beautiful garden called Nagina Wadi, a haven of peace and greenery. The lake has boating facilities for tourists and is a wonderful place to spend some time amidst humming and chirping birds, lush greenery and beautiful views of the sunset.
