Ahmedabad, a miniature metropolis in the Indian state of Gujarat, offers visitors a pleasant combination of old and new. Explore the city in 24 hours with Minibreaks!
Ahmedabad is the largest city in Gujarat and one of the most popular tourist destinations in India. The original city of Ahmedabad was founded by Sultan Ahmad Shah I, who established a township here in 1411 CE. At that time, it was known as Karnavati due to its proximity to two rivers (the Sabarmati and Ranna). The town grew quickly under his reign, but after his death only two years later it fell into disarray with many citizens leaving for other regions like Dholka or Khambhat.
In Ahmedabad, the ancient and new elements coexist in a harmonious way. Sky-high buildings, opulent cafés, and business parks are the dominant visual elements of the metropolis. Ahmedabad, which is located along the Sabarmati River's ever-enchanting shoreline, has a captivating urban environment.
