Rakhial is more or less an industrial hub at Ahmedabad. There are innumerable cotton spinning and weaving mills situated here. A few residential colonies like Suddhodhan Nagar, Prabhu Park, Shnati Nagar, New Cotton Nagar, Manhamagar and Bhart, dot this region.
This place is famous for housing Shaking Minarets (Jhulta Minar). These mysterious minarets are one of the most amazing tourist spots in Ahmedabad. Movie theaters like Amrapali, Usha and Anupama provide good recreational option.
