about heritage walking tours

For an introduction to the urban heritage of the old town, try the Heritage Walking Tours Ahmedabad. These are conducted by the Municipal Corporation and the Cruta Foundation. The route goes from Swami Narayan Mandir, a fine example of Maratha and Jain temple architecture, to Manek Chowk. 

Heritage Walking Tours Ahmedabad goes through twisting lanes of the Old City, taking in bird feeders, sewage systems and traditional rainwater collection systems. There are Jain temples with unexpected riches (like silver gauntlet and diamond tiara-dressed marble statues of the Tirthankaras), and a sprinkling of Persian, Maratha, Mughal and British architecture. 

The highlight of the Heritage Walking Tours Ahmedabad is the 90- year-old Doshiwada ni Pol. The 40- room haveli has carved cherubs with crowns, gabled roofs, Gothic windows and zig-zag wooden stairs — all overlooking a central courtyard, the sole source of ventilation. From the courtyard you can view the bridge-corridors connecting the different ends of the haveli. Like the rest of the structures included in the walk, it’s a living building.
