Nestled along the waters of Sabarmati River, the city of Ahmedabad rests as the ideal representative of the progressive urban economy of Gujarat. At first sight, that’s all you see of Ahmedabad. But, as we dig in a bit closer, we uncover it’s rich and varied history. The astonishing wealth of its architecture varies from age-old mosques and mausoleums to advanced, contemporary buildings. The city is a perfect blend of old and new, materialism and spirituality, cacophony and tranquility. Its commercial hub exists alongside the spiritual reservoir of Sabarmati Ashram. The new city on the western shores of the river gazes nostalgically at its eastern predecessor of the old city, the symbolic heart of Ahmedabad as a whole.
