About Old Ahmedabad

Amidst a labyrinth of narrow streets and bustling bazaars, lies the heritage city of Ahmedabad. Here, time seems to stand still, preserving the rich tapestry of history woven into its very streets. Walking through the old quarters of Ahmedabad is like stepping into a living museum, where every corner whispers tales of bygone eras.

But perhaps the true soul of Ahmedabad lies not only in its monuments or landmarks, but also in the spirit of people. In the bustling chowks and vibrant marketplaces, one finds a melting pot of cultures and traditions, each contributing to the unique tapestry of life in the city.

Because the sweltering heat melts the city through the day, we will explore the city in the evening. We walk around Ahmedabad as the sun goes down, witnessing the changing sunlight creating dramatic shadows.

As we engage in conversation, we walk through the narrow lanes of pols, stopping by at some havelis and temples. The walk offers opportunities for candid street photography, portraits of friendly locals, and architecture photography.
