Vastrapur Lake, Ahmedabad Overview

Situated in Western Ahmedabad, Vastrapur Lake is an ancient lake which was renovated and prettified in 2002. A huge statue of Narsinh Mehta (a famous poet-saint of Gujarat), was installed here and the lake was named after him as the Bhakt Kavi Narasinh Mehta Sarovar. It boasts of an open-air theatre which is used for organising several cultural events of the city.

When there was an alarm of the Vastrapur Lake drying up in 2016, the local authorities ensured moving the fish and other aqua life to a safer place. However, many fishes had already died by then. In the year 2019, the AMC (Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation) opened the route for river Narmada to flow into the lake, which was initially only occasional.
