Ahmedabad (also called Ahmadabad and Amdavad) is the sixth largest city in India and the nation’s first UNESCO World Heritage City. This riverside city along Sabarmati River was the epicenter of Mahatma Gandhi’s non-violent movement for India's independence, and thus the numero uno attraction of the city is now the Sabarmati Aashram from where it had all started. Ahmedabad is a colorful bouquet of cultural, traditional, and modern feel. Visitors can get a delightful glimpse of the same in its Navaratri festival which is also considered to be the world’s longest dance festival. Some architectural attractions in the city include Adalaj Stepwell, Jama Mosque and Akshardham Temple.
Things to do in Ahmedabad
The Sabarmati Ashram was founded by Mahatma Gandhi in 1915 and used to serve as his residence. Scenically situated on the bank of the Sabarmati River, this calm abode skyrocketed to nationwide fame with the launch of Gandhi’s historical Dandi March in 1930 to protest against the Salt Tax imposed by the British. The iconic ashram is dotted with a handicrafts centre, a handmade paper factory and a spinning wheel factory on its inside.
Jama Masjid (also known as Jami or Jumma Mosque) was built by Ahmed Shah I in 1424 AD. It is a remarkable work of early 15th century Indo-Islamic architecture and is made of yellow sandstone. This grand mosque stands in the centre of a large courtyard and is accessible via three entrances. Jama Masjid also contains many elements of multi-religions origin on its walls and adjacent areas but not everyone usually notices it. The mosque is flanked by the tombs of Ahmed Shah I, his son and his grandson and the graves of his queens.
Adalaj Stepwell is located in the village of Adalaj, some distance away from Ahmedabad. It was built by Rana Veer Singh of the Vaghela dynasty in 1498 as a classic work of Indian architecture. This five stories deep stepwell is a subject of ornate designing and carvings, and is associated with a heart-wrenching tale of Queen Roopba who gave up her life after the king Rana Veer Singh was killed in a battle. One can also notice the intricate carvings in Sanskrit language at certain parts of the stepwell that depict the exact date and time when it was built.
