Home to the immortal name of Gandhi, Ahmedabad (Amdavad) offers you delectable Gujarati food, vibrant and  colorful textile prints, and Dandiya, which is one of the most extravagant dance festivals in the country.
Ahmedabad (Amdavad) is named after its founder Ahmed Shah I, the second Sultan of the Gujarat Sultanate. The largest city in the state of Gujarat, it is often mistaken to be the capital. Laden with rich history, the city not only offers few of the most famous Hindu and Islamic architectural marvels such as the Akshardham Temple and the Jama Masjid, but also boasts of one of the very few drive-in theaters in the country. Hub of the textile industry, the city, known to be one of the major business centers of the country, springs to a different life with the famous Dandiya Masti during the Navratris.

The original city was founded in 1411, but some historians state that Ahmedabad (Amdavad) stands on the site called Karnavati, established by King Karna (1064-1094 CE). At the cusp of the agricultural hinterland of south-central Gujarat and the scrub lands of Kutch/ Kathiawar. The modern city of Ahmedabad (Amdavad) is almost equally divided on either side of the Sabarmati River. You will find the greatest variety in food here — Gujarati cuisine, like the intrepid peoples of this state, veers towards the sweet but never quite loses its essential diversity. Virtually the whole city queues up at restaurants every weekend.

The Sarabhais are the city’s first family and have endowed Ahmedabad (Amdavad) with some of its finest educational and cultural institutions. The city’s major heritage sites lie in Old Ahmedabad (Amdavad), east of the Sabarmati River, as do the railway station and the bus stand. It’s a maze of crowded streets criss-crossing across monuments and, sometimes, you even stumble upon not so well known architectural wonders tucked away in corners. There is perhaps no better introduction to the urban heritage of Old Ahmedabad (Amdavad) than the Heritage Walk conducted every morning by the Municipal Corporation of Ahmedabad (Amdavad) (MCA) and the Cruta Foundation.

"A day in the life of Abad students"
reviewed on Oct 20 2014
Ahmedabad is a student city and home to many globally renowned institutes like IIM, NID, MICA and CEPT. Thus, it is inevitable that the city be abuzz with pocket-friendly dining options. Some of the tastiest food of the city can be found outside these colleges, if you know where to look. The road outside IIM-A campus is lined with stalls dishing up everything from parathas to Chinese bhel (a unique dish where various Indo-Chinese dishes like chowmein, manchurian, fried noodles, etc. are mixed together). Do not forget to taste the chai at the legendary Rambhai’s kitlee. RK Egg Center near NID whips up the yummiest omelettes in town.
