The city is a vibrant business district and rising centre of education, information technology and scientific industries. Divided in two - the old city and the new city; The city offers different moods right from the hustle-bustle of C.G. Road in the heart of Ahmedabad to the quite retreat of of the Sabarmati Ashram.

This is one of the best tours I have been on. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the history of India and of Gandhi. He gave us a profound education on the political history and Gandhi’s role in that history. The Ashram was a great representation of all that Gandhi did to try and change people’s minds about utilizing non-violence in every aspect of ones life. It was a wonderful tour that I will always remember.

While Gandhiji wanted to experiment values of simple living, he shifted his home from Kochrab to this humble place on the banks of river Sabarmati, which was right in the middle of Sabarmati Jail and Crematorium, the two places where most of the satyagrahis ended up. Sabarmati Ashram served as the power center to strategize the freedom struggle and remained home to Bapu till 1930, when Bapu began Salt Satyagrah and pledged never to return to this place until India achieved total independence and he never did. This place draws thousands of visitors every year, not only to peek into his life and his values, but also to introspect. Lets take a walk and listen to the intriguing tales from the life of Mahatma.

We booked this tour to experience the "real" Ahmedabad, and man, it delivered. Our guide Nayan was very well informed, showed us around to different hard-to-find spots around the city and was very flexible, adding a well worth detour to the walk when he noticed our interest in a specific story he was telling. On every of our questions, there was a satisfactory answer. He also felt a bit like our personal guardian, showing us how to safely cross streets, looking for solutions with people at the mosques so I could enter (stupidly wearing shorts that day) and checking if cafés were billing us properly. Speaking of the café, it's well worth following Nayan's suggestions here. The quality is high, the price very low. Ask him about the local food market too if you don't have clear dinner plans after the tour, which was also a great experience for us. To summarise, if not clear already, I strongly recommend this tour.

99 Destinations provided a perfect, amazing and memorable tour of beautiful and largely undiscovered (by westerners) Gujarat. More adventure than vacation, this is a perfect destination for travelers looking for an authentic experience in the real India. Phenomenal variety, from culture, nature, spectacular desert vistas, to safaris and excellent Gujarati cuisine, Gujarat will surprise and tantalize your senses. During our 18 day adventure 99 Destinations (and especially Neha) was always there for us if needed, and provided an amazing, experienced and thoughtful driver (Juned) who safely drove us throughout the region. We stayed in Palaces, luxury tents, beach resorts and comfortable hotels. Again, 99 Destinations made excellent recommendations, all of which we thoroughly enjoyed. Without doubt, we will return to India, and we would certainly choose 99 Destinations again.

Ahmedabad is the first Indian city to be inscribed to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites due to the presence of numerous age-old complexes and centuries-old temples and monuments. Hutheesing Jain Temple is one amongst these historical complexes which add on to the beauty of Ahmedabad. Surrounded by some of the busiest markets of Ahmedabad and their sea of noise sits this quiet island of peace and tranquility. This landmark Jain temple has breath taking architecture with the marble structure and pillars engraved with exquisite carvings. Located in the city of Ahmedabad in Gujarat, Hutheesing Jain Temple was constructed in 1848.
