Gandhinagar: The Leela Gandhinagar, the luxury hospitality destination in the twin city of Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar, celebrated Independence Day with fervour and also organised a workshop to promote and support traditional artisans.

The Leela Gandhinagar team and guests participated enthusiastically in the flag-hoisting ceremony followed by the singing of the national anthem as a part of the Independence Day celebrations on Tuesday morning.
