Kankaria Carnival

Ahmedabad: The state Government and the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation organised a weeklong gala carnival to celebrate the opening of the renovated Kankaria Lake on December 25.
Chief Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the carnival on Thursday. The event saw many renowned artists of Gujarat participate. We were invited by the AMC and the standing committee to perform for one hour on 30th at 8 pm on stage 5. Almost 1.5 lac people visited the carnival everyday.

History says that Built in 1451 by Sultan Qutub-ud-din, the lake has internal sluice gates and an island garden which is also known as the Nagina Wadi. This is an Urdu word for beautiful garden. Also, the lake has a fairly large number of birds who visit every year. Mughal Emperor Jahangir and Empress Noorjehan were particularly fond of this lake.
