Kankaria Lake Ahmedabad Reviews
Kids, big kids! Feb 02, 2011
Kankaria Lake is the largest in Ahmedabad, and is situated on the outskirts of the city. Although the sight is a bit of a theme park these days after extensive renovation, it used to be the area where the kings of Ahmedabad used to come and bathe. There is a small entrance fee to pay here. Apart from the lake itself, there are various attractions which are dotted around the lake. For example, there is a zoo, sea life centre and a hot air balloon ride facility (although this only goes up and down to give an overview of the area; it doesn‘t actually fly away). Apart from the entrance fee of around 10 Rupees, each of these attractions command a separate fee.
Combined with some gardens and a railway ride which is for the children, the sight is clearly aimed at family visitors. The lake is rather enjoyable to walk around and the calm nature of the sight makes a lovely contrast to the busy streets outside.
An essential visit in Ahmedabad if you have kids, or are a big kid yourself!
