About Kite Museum

Everyone in Ahmedabad and Gujarat is extremely busy in the month of January. Why? Flying kites! The kite festival is held on the 14th January every year as 'Sankranti' when the sky is filled with kites of colors, sizes, and types. To commemorate that spirit of Ahmedabad, a kite lover of the city Bhanu Shah took a unique initiative. He donated a collection of his kites to the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation. In return, the corporation devoted the cellar of the Sanskar Kendra in Ahmedabad to host this collection. This came to be called Patang Kite Museum and attracts intrigued visitors. The Kite Museum was set up in 1984. It is the first such museum in India and although it is not very well curated, it holds the interest of visitors with the uniqueness of the kites on display.
