Ahmedabad

Founded in 1411 by King of Gujarat Ahmed Shah I, Ahmedabad is a city defined by its architecture and accommodates a wide range of differing styles. From majestic 15th and 16th century mosques and mausoleum complexes, 11th century step-wells, fine havelis and historic Hindu and Jain temples to 18th and 19th century buildings with their European colonial influences, the city is also home to modern masterpieces designed by Charles Correa and Le Corbusier. The chaotic old city is a real highlight with many striking examples of Indo-Islamic architecture and traditional haveli homes. If interested in fabrics and textiles, spend time in the excellent Calico Museum of Textiles with its extensive collections and also visit the Sabarmati Ashram and museum which was opened, in his home city, by Mahatma Gandhi in 1917. Every holiday and tour to India that we design is one-off, memorable and special.
