Approximately 10Kms from the city of Ahmedabad, Thol Bird Sanctuary is a great getaway from the city. The lake and 7 Sq Kms area around it, declared in 1988, is considered as the sanctuary where migratory birds build their nest and breed as they get their required food from the farm and marshy lands adjacent to the lake and also from the water reeds in the shallow water.
