  • Nightlife

Describing It

Popularly referred to as the ‘Land of Gandhi’ with the Sabarmati Ashram still holding its old-world charm for visitors, Ahmedabad comes across as a city rich in history. From mosques to museums, tombs, temples, stepwells and lakes to theme parks, galleries and spas, Ahmedabad, also known as Amdavad, has a lot to offer.

A bustling mini-metropolis with a rich heritage and culture, Ahmedabad is the gateway to great Gujarati food and ample shopping venues. The city is a gastronomic paradise and since most Gujaratis are vegetarians, you will find vegetarian food more often than not. Ahmedabad is also known for its various textile industries, so traditional hand embroidered clothes make for great gifts back home.

Language is not a problem in Ahmedabad. Although the local language is Gujarati, you can get around easily using English or Hindi at most places. Ahmedabad may not be a very popular ‘tourist’ destination but it’s certainly worth a visit. The marvellous architecture featuring a perfect blend of Hindu and Muslim styles, Gujarati hospitality and the essence of something that tells you non-violence and peace are the key to a happy life, all make for a well-deserved holiday to Ahmedabad.
