    Thank you for the wonderful pictures of the Randarda Lake, in Rajkot. Rajkot being the third-most advanced district in Gujarat, has been selected as one of the hundred Indian cities to be developed as a smart city. It also had a significant part in the Indian independence movement and there are many places to visit in Rajkot which are of historical relevance.
