Getting Around Ahmedabad

   

• Visit the birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi’s non-violent movement for India's independence, including the historic Sabarmati ashram. It remains the largest tourist attraction and lies on the tranquil stretch of the Sabarmati river. It was formerly referred to as the Satyagraha (or nonviolent resistance) Ashram during the lifetime of the Mahatma.

     

• An absolute ‘must visit’ is Sidi Sayed Mosque, unique for its exquisite screens in the ten semi-circular windows. The screens carved out of one rock are just breath-taking.

       

• There’s also Bhadra Fort, which once housed royal palaces and splendid gardens. It boasts the temple of Bhadrakali and was built in 1411 during the Maratha rule.

   

• Other notable tourist attractions include: Heritage Houses of poles, Akshardham Temple, Science City, International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) temple, and the Kamla Nehru Zoo.

       

• The 9-day Navaratri festival is a good reason to visit. Held from 10-18 October, it is considered to be the longest dance festival on earth. Ahmedabad comes to life with Navratri and visitors simply love it, in particular the energetic regional dances Garba and Dandiya.

       

• A trip to the Indian Institute of Management, the Indian Institute of Technology and the National Institute of design are well worth a visit. But don’t leave Ahmedabad without visiting the factory of Tata Nano -- the smallest and cheapest car ever produced.
