There is a provision of parks, extensive planting and a recreational area along the river giving the city a green garden-city atmosphere.The Akshardham temple is located in Gandhinagar. There was a determination to make Gandhinagar a purely Indian enterprise, partly because the state of Gujarat was the birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi. For this reason, the planning was done by two Indian town planners: Prakash M Apte & H. K.
