Discover and relive rich history in Ahmedabad, India’s very first UNESCO World Heritage City. It is also known as the Walled City. Walk the footsteps of so many others before you, including Mahatma Gandhi, who lived in Ahmedabad for 15 years. Feast your eyes on rich architectural heritage throughout the city, like 15th to 17th-century Indo-Islamic monuments. While now a bustling city, it is still deeply rooted in tradition and is worth a visit to learn more about. Relive history on the steps of the awe-inspiring Adalaj Stepwell and the marvellous Akshardham Temple. Visit the Sabarmati Ashram for a journey into the past or join a tour to visit the magnificent Statue of Unity, the world’s tallest statue at 182 metres. Take a break and explore the city’s culinary culture at Manek Chowk Road, or Law Garden Night Market, discover Gujarat Science City, and take in the sights and sounds at the beautiful Sabarmati Riverfront. A truly enchanting city, Ahmedabad promises to be worth the trip.
