Ahmedabad

AhemdabadAhmedabad was named after the Sultan Ahmed Shah, who built the city in 1411. Also called the "Manchester of the East', today, it is one of the most highly industrialized cities of India.

Historically, Ahmedabad was a major base camp during the Indian freedom struggle. Mahatma Gandhi built the Sabarmati Ashram on the outskirts of the city, from where he guided India to freedom. Today Ahmedabad, more than any other Indian city represents non-violence and peace.

Ahmedabad is also the textile city of India. Though the city has developed more as a business and commercial centre, it also holds attraction as a centre for the study of Indo-Saracenic architecture, a style that fuses elements of Hindu and Islamic architecture.

The old city of Ahmedabad is dotted with labyrinth of bylanes called polls. The exquisitely carved wooden mansions are beautiful examples of the craftsmanship of the time.

Although it is no longer the capital of Gujarat, Ahmedabad remains the second largest industrial city in western India. Place of Interest
