The Leela Gandhinagar is an architectural marvel built atop of Gandhinagar railway station, located at the heart of vibrant Gujarat. Each nook and corner of the hotel showcases the diverse cultural influence of Gujarat. Starting from the rarely seen flora and fauna pictures to the grand architectural inspirations of Adalaj stepwell or the vav as we know it coupled with the modern Venetian mirrors, the hotel represents an ideal juxtaposition of the traditional and contemporary form of decor. Each piece of art at the hotel represents a unique element symbolizing the ‘Garvi Gujarat’ culture, captured through Kutch embroidered fabrics created using acrylic glass mirror to the influence of local rural culture- ‘kirkee’ and ‘kiwar’ paintings done on aesthetically local wooden carved doors coupled with gold leaf borders painting style.
Our glorious experiential private dining spaces at the hotel, are exclusively designed to create a myriad of memories by the artisan who has painstakingly stitched together the mosaic patterns along the Thikri designed walls that surround it. The hotel is further adorned with beautiful miniature paintings in pure leaf shades that represent an inspired canvas flashing the architecture of Gujarat like the Modhera Sun Temple and Ambhaji Temple ceiling designs. These temple ceiling patterns are here to create the aura of serenity at the hotel, with the patterns of design on the painting that will be in the line of silver leafing with tinges of wine, ochre and champagne shades. Coupled together with royal artefacts inspired by Gujarat and modern contemporary Venetian mirrors.
With the rich heritage influence of the railways in the hotel, the all-day dining located at the lobby level- encapsulates the significant history of the ancient Indian railways through pictures acquired from the railway museum itself, which further adds a historical charm to the dining experience. Further enhancement of Gujarat heritage is captured through the various miniature photographs of the famous lions of ‘Gir Forest’ giving you a true sense of Indian luxury and pride.
