About the City of Ahmedabad
Ahmedabad (also Amdavad, Ahmedabad or Ahemdavad) is the largest city in Gujarat. This is a stunning metropolis with ancient history, lots of interesting buildings, maze of old quarters, excellent museums, good restaurants and amazing night markets. Although the old-world charm almost disappeared under the pressure of traffic, crowds, dirt and sharp contrasts between wealth and poverty inherent in the 21st century, many travelers stop here on the way to Rajasthan or Mumbai to go to the Sabarmati ashram (Sabarmati Ashram; former head office Gandhi). You will have to make a lot of effort to get acquainted with the city, because it is stretched and movement on it is difficult.
History of Ahmedabad
Ahmedabad was founded in 1411 by Sultan Gujarat Ahmed Shah at the place where, according to legend, he saw a hare who was chasing a dog (the sultan was surprised by the bravery of the hare) . The city quickly grew beyond the citadel on the eastern shore and in the XVII century. became one of the best cities in India, a thriving shopping center with beautiful Islamic architecture. His influence weakened, but from the second half of the nineteenth century. Ahmedabad was revived again as a huge textile center (Manchester of the East). By the end of XX century. Many mills were closed here, and the subsequent economic crisis led to widespread atrocities in 2002, when more than 1,200 people were killed, mostly Muslims. Today, Ahmedabad is experiencing another bloom as a center for information technology, education and chemical production.
Tourist places in Ahmdabad
The main attraction of this road is the Tindarvaza Triple Gate crossing it. Not far from them is Mahatma Gandhi Street, where the Jama Masjid mosque, erected in 1423 by Ahmad Shah, has been preserved. On Fridays, you can see crowds of devout Muslims who came to Friday prayers. During the construction of this temple were used the remains of the destroyed Hindu and Jain shrines. It is assumed that the black slab that adorns the main arch was once the basis of the Jain deity. 260 columns, decorated with beautiful carvings, support the fifteen domes of the mosque. Lattice windows allow light to pass inside the premises.
But east of the Jama Masjid mosque, not far from the eastern entrance, there is a jewelry market on Manek-Chowk. Next to him stands the tomb of Ahmad Shah, in which the sultan, his son and grandson are buried.
In the heart of the market stands Ranik-Hazira – the mausoleum of the wives of the Sultan, of which there were several dozen. The layout of this tomb is similar to the tomb of Ahmad Shah.
Southeast of Manek-Chowk is located the Rani Si-pri mosque, which the locals called Masd-yid-i-Nagin. Its exquisite proportions and high thin minarets give a special chic to this street.
North-west of Manek-Chowk raises a mosque of Rani Rupmati, dedicated to the Sultan’s wife, born in India. This sanctuary was built in the middle of the XV century. In appearance, you can see both Hindu and Muslim motifs. Stone grates were preserved here, behind which the female half of the house was located.
Not far from the station rise the famous Reeling Minarets, which suffered during the 2001 earthquake? Tourists are not allowed here.
To the west of the Sabarmati River lies New Ahmedabad, the unique structures of which were erected according to the drawings of Le Corbusier and the American Lewis Kahn.
The richest collection of magnificent miniatures occupies the building Sanskar Kendra, designed by Le Corbusier.
The Sabarmati Ashram is a collection of huts with tiled roofs that more closely resemble a colony of Spartans. This area has earned fame in times of war for the independence of the state: this is where the general headquarters of the leaders was located..
