One of the most liveliest cities in India. A visit to Ahmedabad is a great way to discover Gujarat.

Ahmedabad was built by Sultan Ahmed Shah to serve as his capital in 1411 A .D. While returning from one of his campaigns the young Sultan Ahmed Shah impressed with the scenic surroundings and climate of the town of Ashawal undertook the building of his new capital with a fort and twelve gates and named it Ahmedabad. While you can only see the ramparts of the 600 year old Bhadra fort, almost all the twelve gates with the exception of one have withstood the ravages of time and man.

If you have been to Ahmedabad before you will want to come again. If you are coming soon, Welcome. Ahmedabad has something for everyone. You will be glad you made it.
