The walled city of Ahmedabad founded 600 years ago, is a city full of paradoxes- owing to its blend of colorful history filled with conquests on one hand and its association with the martyr of peace and Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, on the other. The cheerful co-existence of the new tourism spots with the old heritage presents its visitors with a virtual kaleidoscope of hues, languages, traditions, festivals and cultures.

 

Hailed as the Manchester of the East, Ahmedabad is a business hub juggernaut and also one of India’s important seats of learning too owing to a high number of reputed institutions located here. Its well-connected roadways, rails and airways; modern malls, multiplexes, as well as heritage museums, mosques and monuments mark this city to be of huge importance in varied avatars.
