Ahmedabad is perhaps the most flourishing city, in terms of employment, happiness index, and industrial and cultural growth, after Mumbai. Also known as Amdavad and Karnavati, this famous city is situated on the banks of river Sabarmati and about 30 km from Gandhinagar. Ahmedabad shows a perfect balance between the historical and modern aspects, and is known for its educational institutions, commerce and trade and historical sites. For the tourists, there are several places to visit in Ahmedabad, both ancient and modern. The city with its array of low-cost, multi-speciality hospitals has also become a hotspot for medical tourists. Let’s take a look at tourism scenario of the city.

Gandhi Ashram is perhaps the most important social and cultural place in the city, Gandhi Ashram was set-up in 1917 by Mahatma Gandhi and saw several important phases in India’s struggle for freedom. Another major attraction in the city is the Bhadra Fort, which was constructed by Sultan Ahmad Shah in the 15th century. Today, the fort serves as the hosting venue for hoisting the national flag on national holidays. For the religious lot, the Swaminarayan Temple, Jama Masjid and Ahmed Shah Mosque, are the major places to visit. Ahmedabad is also popular for its gardens.
