History

In 1960, the Indian state of Bombay was split into two states — Maharashtra and Gujarat. Ahmedabad was selected to be the first capital of Gujarat. It was proposed that a new capital city be constructed for the state on the lines of the other two planned cities of India — Chandigarh and Bhubaneshwar. Initial plans were to rope in the renowned American architect Louis Kahn to build the city to rival Le Corbusier's Chandigarh. But the plans were cancelled due to pressure to make the new city an Indian enterprise. Year 1960 (MCMLX) was a leap year starting on Friday (the link is to a full 1960 calendar). ...

So the charge of making the new city was given to Indian architects H. K. Mewada and Prakash M. Apte. Both had worked as apprentices during the construction of Chandigarh. The new city was constructed as per their plan and was named Gandhinagar after Mahatma Gandhi, a Gujarati himself. The capital was shifted from Ahmedabad to Gandhinagar Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (Gujarati: , Hindi: , IAST: mohandās karamcand gāndhī, IPA: ) (October 2, 1869 – January 30, 1948) was a major political and spiritual leader of the Indian independence movement. ...

Each intersection is marked by signal names such as CH1, CH2, CH3 or JA1,JA2.
