Gandhinagar the capital of Gujarat is in west-central India. It lies on the banks of the Sabarmati River, north of the former capital of Ahmedabad. It is organized in 30 residential sectors, in an ordered style influenced by the work of Le Corbusier, who designed Chandigarh. Its near-symmetrical numbered streets are wide and strangely quiet, lined with 16 lakh trees. An expressway connects Gandhinagar with Ahmedabad.

A devastating earthquake hit parts of Gujarat on January 26, 2001 and has caused considerable loss of life and property. A few of the cities have been reduced to rubble, especially in the Kuchh region. Quite a few monuments have also suffered damage. It is, therefore, advisable to find relevant information before you set out to explore them.
