The Vithalbhai Patel Bhawan

The Vithalbhai Patel Bhawan located in Gandhi Nagar houses the Gujarat Vidhan Sabha and the legislature offices.This building was named after the great freedom fighter Vithalbhai Patel. Vithalbhai Patel was the co-founder of the Swaraj Party and elder brother of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. He was also the first Indian speaker of Central Legislative Assembly.

Since this is a High Security area, one has to take special permission to visit. I had the view of this landmark from outside. The foundation stone for this building was laid by the then President N Sanjiva Reddy in 1978 and the construction completed in 1982. This landmark building was designed by H. K. Mewada, chief planner of Gandhinagar.
