Ahmedabad, on the Bay of Cambay, is Gujarat’s principal city. Given its mix of medieval and modern architecture, along with the co-existence of Hindu, Muslim and Jain communities, it is a compelling place to explore. Indeed, Ahmedabad is one of the finest places in India to see the blend of Hindu and Islamic cultural and architectural styles known as Indo-Saracenic. This vibrant city is characterised by its colours and sounds and its ambition to embrace the 21st century.Read More
With so much going on all the time, there is little opportunity to be bored in the bustling city of Ahmedabad. The Jama Masjid (smaller than the one in Delhi but equally impressive) is one of the many ancient monuments in this city worth visiting. Marvel at its stunning architecture and beautiful, wide courtyard before taking a peek inside the nearby Rani Sipri’s Mosque. To learn more about the culture and history of the city, visitors can join one of the heritage walks, run by the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC).
For some lighter entertainment, kids and adults alike will love having a look around the Kite Museum, which hosts an impressive collection of rare and antique kites. Alternatively, why not indulge in a breath of fresh air and take a stroll along the Sabarmati riverfront. It is still a work in progress but the cool breeze that comes in from across the water is a welcome respite from the heat of the inner city. Once the sun sets, head over to the Law Garden night market and haggle away over some beautiful handmade trinkets.
