Things to do in Ahmedabad

By Bgiles Subscribe to RSS | July 31st 2012 | Views:

Ahmedabad has a wide range of activities and attractions to see. The largest city in the Indian state of Gujarat, Ahmedabad has a population of more than 5 million people, making it the fifth largest in India. The city’s buildings tell a story through their exquisite architecture, and the host of excellent restaurants help convey the culture of the region. Although the city has a reputation for being quite industrial, there are plenty of interesting things to see and do. Here are just a few of the top attractions you may want to see while visiting Ahmedabad.

NC Mehta Gallery

The NC Mehta Gallery was named after Late Shri Nanalal C. Mehta, the most famous of all Indian miniature painters. The gallery hosts a collection of miniature paintings by artists from all across India. Along with the miniature paintings, the gallery has a vast collection of manuscripts; the most famous is Chaurapanchasika (Fifty Love Lyrics of a Thief) written by Vilhana, an 11th-century poet. He wrote these love poems as he awaited execution for falling in love with the King’s daughter. He was spared by the King after he read the poems, and the King then allowed the two young lovers to marry. With free admission, there’s no reason to skip this interesting gallery.

AutoWorld Museum

This auto museum was established by world-renowned millionaire Shri Pranlal Bhogilal. The museum houses over a hundred of the finest cars ever made, from Bentleys to Rolls-Royces. Motorcycles and other motor vehicles are on display in addition to these vintage cars. Visitors have the option of driving some of these classic cars for quite a substantial additional fee.

Kamla Nehru Zoo

The Kamla Nehru Zoo is located on the banks of the Kankaria Lake. The zoo is famous for housing rare albino animals from species like the red-necked wallaby and the American alligator. You will also find endangered species such as the Indian wild ass, the mouse deer and the Asiatic lion. If you’re looking for a bargain, head there on Thursdays – it’s free.

In addition to these attractions, make sure to head to some restaurants out of the main tourist areas for some delicious regional food. If you’ve been thinking about a trip to India, consider flying into Ahmedabad. It’s a great place to start and end from and flights to Ahmedabad are reasonable when booked in advance. If it’s a unique and different city break you wish to take, add Ahmedabad to the list of possible destinations, its eateries and attractions are some of the best in Asia.
