Gandhinagar pronunciation (help·info) (English: Gandhinager Hindi: गांधीनगर Gujarati: ગાંધીનગર ) is the capital of the state of Gujarat and Proved as 'Merged Capital' of India through its Connectivity with Financial Capital of India, Mumbai and Administrative Capital of Nation, Delhi, Gandhinagar is Located on the West Central point of Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor.

The famous Swaminarayan temple of is built here. There was, however, tremendous political pressure to make Gandhinagar a purely Indian enterprise, partly because the state of Gujarat was the birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi. Kalia illumines Kahn's early influence in the city and his replacement by Doshi and then by American-trained H. K. Mewada, who had apprenticed with Le Corbusier in Chandigarh. Kalia shows that, unlike the other two cities, Gandhinagar would become emblematic of Gandhian ideals of swadeshi (Indigenous) goods and swaraj (self-rule)
