Ahmedabad City

Ahmedabad, Gujarat’s largest city, is known for its remarkable architecture. It has a fascinating walled city, founded in 1411 by Sultan Ahmed Shah, redolent with imposing mosques built in a provincial Indo-Saracenic style during the 15th and 16th century, old residential quarters called ‘pols’ which are superb examples of urban planning and exquisitely carved havelis. Just outside the old city are excellent examples of stepwell architecture at Asarva and Adalaj. Another noteworthy feature of Ahmedabad is the Sabarmati Ashram, Gandhijis home from 1917 until 1930. The Ashram served as one of the main centres of the Indian freedom struggle. After independence, well-known architects like Le Corbusier, Luis Kahn, Charles Correa and B.V. Doshi have built some of their finest works in this city. The diversity of architecture in the city from medieval to modern works, together with the presence of the National Institute of Design and CEPT University, make Ahmedabad, India’s Mecca for designers. The Walled City of Ahmedabad, was designated as India’s First World Heritage City in 2017.
