About Ahmedabad

Ahmedabad received its name in the 15th century by its founder Sultan Ahmed Shah. Located in Gujarat, a state in India, it is one of the state’s most interesting cities. The Sabarmati River, which passes through the city, gives life to both the city and the region it is located in. Some of the city’s most attractive features are the outer walls built by Mahmud Begada in the 15th century to fortify the city. Although today a significant portion has been destroyed, the remains of the city walls are clearly visible.

Among the most notable places to visit are The Calico Museum of Textiles, considered one of the world’s best textile museums, the Bhadra Fort where you can enjoy views of the city from above, the Darpana Academy of Performing Arts, which brings together cultural and artistic events, and known as the Gandhi Museum, the Sabarmati Ashram, which is an interesting museum featuring things from Gandhi’s time spent in Ahmedabad. One of the most practical and fastest ways to explore the city is to partake in a cultural tour, which depart from the city center at regular intervals starting in the early morning.

After the tour, which is the best way to discover Ahmedabad’s most important historical sites, enjoy a meal in the city center. There are many restaurants where you can enjoy traditional Indian food, or foreign restaurants that mostly offer Far Eastern cuisine, or vegetarian restaurants.
