Ahmedabad city is located in the Indian state of Gujarat on the banks of river Sabarmati. The city got its name from its past Mughal ruler ‘Sultan Ahmed Shah’. It is hard not to mention prominent ‘Sabarmati Ashram’ established by notable Mahatma Gandhi when talking about Ahmedabad. This Ashram was the base from where the historical ‘Dandi March’ was launched. The ‘Navratri festival’ celebration is also something definitely not to be missed in this city. The people of Gujarat celebrate festival dedicated to Goddess Durga with high festive spirit. They also perform folk dance Garba and Dandiya wearing their traditional dress with great zeal.

The temple is situated in Gandhinagar which is near Ahmedabad and also the capital city of Gujarat. The grand temple is built in the memory of Lord Swaminarayana. The temple has five separate halls displaying informative exhibitions about Hindu heritage and universal values.
The next place we will go to is Sidi Saiyyed Mosque counted among famous mosques of Ahmedabad. The whole mosque is constructed in the form of an arc. The latticework done at several places is eye-catching especially ‘the tree of life’ steals the show. The intricate stone carvings are astonishing and reflect the invincible talent and dedication of the artists back then.
Afternoon having Lunch at local restaurant.
After Lunch, we will further move towards our next destination Hutheesing Jain Temple. The Temple is dedicated to Dharmanatha, 15th Jain Tirthankar and is best known of Ahmedabad’s ornate Jain Temples. We will continue our city tour visiting Gandhi Ashram. Gandhi ji spent several years of his life in this Ashram located on the banks of Sabarmati River. This ashram was Gandhi’s headquarter during the long struggle for Indian independence. The Ashram has peaceful surroundings circled by greenery of trees nested by birds and squirrels on it. The serenity of the place offering a scenic view of the river will captivate you.
Later we will drive to ‘Adalaj Step Well’, an architectural wonder built by Queen Rudabai. The innovative architecture is seven stories deep and was used to get relief from the scorching sun in the summers. As you step down the stairs, you will experience the surprising drop in temperature. You will also see the fine designs carved on the walls while stepping down and are irresistible to capture.

Interesting experienceMarch 01 2020
It was a unique experience for us even though we have visited India before. The city has a very positive aura which we particularly enjoyed. The Akshardham Temple and Gandhi’s ashram were two places that were very calm and soothing for the senses. I would love to explore such places in the future. As for this tour, it’s a 10/10!
Worth the waitMarch 01 2020
A lot of our friends have been to India and they kept telling us what a great place it is. Luckily, this time we got a chance to visit the country and we’re glad we chose Indiator for our maiden trip. Their services were impressive and Ahmedabad turned out to be a happy surprise. Coming back very soon!

Lively place and memorable tour. I and my family had a great time in Ahmedabad. Would love to explore more Indian cities in the coming time, with Indiator of course. Cheers to you guys!
Beautiful mix of culturesFebruary 28 2020
We went to a Hindu Temple first, then a mosque, and then to a Jain Temple. Such peaceful coexistence is only possible in Gandhi’s land. Very impressed, both with Ahmedabad and Indiator’s services!
Gandhi Ashram is a delightFebruary 28 2020
We’ve heard a lot about Gandhi and all these places associated with him but to be able to visit the city that has been so closely associated with the great leader and exploring all these interesting locations was great fun. Thank you very much for this tour.
Very peaceful cityFebruary 28 2020
I enjoyed the peaceful vibe of the city. It is actually infectious and very-very positive. I wish I could stay there longer. Will definitely return someday and spend more time in Ahmedabad.
