Mahatma Mandir

"MAHATMA MANDIR"

Government of Gujarat has started an initiative to develop a center dedicated to father of nation Mahatma Gandhi at state capital Gandhinagar.

A convention centre with capacity to accommodate over 5,000 people will also be constructed in the same complex. Here all kinds of information and literature on Mahatma Gandhi would be available for people interested in knowing more about Bapu’s life.

The Mahatma Gandhi Mandir project is being implemented by L&T.

The proposed 25,000 sq meter complex would also have an exhibition hall to be built over 10,000 sq ft (930 m2) area. It will also have conference halls for sector specific sessions and meeting rooms. An auditorium for entertainment, prayer hall, meditation room, a grand speening wheel will also come up as part of the project.

The next edition of the biennial investors’ meet, touted as ‘Davos in action’, will be held at a convention centre being constructed in sector 13 in Gandhinagar.

It will be the biggest convention centre in Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar. Once built, the infrastructure would be used for other government programmes as well.

The location is 2 km away from state vidhansabha building in the direction of Gandhinagar Railway station.
