The life of Gandhi

You couldn’t fly to Ahmedabad without visiting the Sabarmati Ashram – Mahatma Gandhi’s residence between 1917 and 1930 during his fight for India’s independence.

Gandhi’s modest living space is today preserved at this site on the west bank of the Sabarmati River, as well as his personal items including shoes, white clothes and a pair of rounded glasses.

The museum also gives visitors the chance to learn more about Gandhi’s incredible life, his teachings and the pivotal role he played in the creation of modern India. Many people take the opportunity to pause, sit and meditate in the historic surroundings.

Flying to Ahmedabad: FAQs

Where are the best places to stay in Ahmedabad?

Situated close to the old city, the lively streets of the Lal Darwaja neighbourhood are home to many of Ahmedabad’s budget hotels. Mid-range and upmarket accommodation is mostly found in the more sedate surroundings of Khanpur Road, which runs parallel to the east bank of the Sabarmati River.

Where should I dine out in Ahmedabad?

Widely acknowledged as the best place in Gujarat for eating out, Ahmedabad has restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets. Food stalls abound in the old city, while western districts can lay claim to many of the smarter eateries. Make sure you try Gujarati thali, an assortment of dishes popular for lunch and dinner.

Will I have to haggle over prices in Ahmedabad?

Haggling or bargaining is part of the culture in India, so be prepared for some good-natured negotiations. As a general rule, haggling is restricted to markets and small shops and fixed prices are normal in upmarket stores and government-owned outlets.

What should I see in Ahmedabad?

Mahatma Gandhi’s former home at the Sabarmati Ashram is a must-see, while those wanting to learn more about his life can take a tour of the wider Gujarat state. Make room in your schedule for visits to some of Ahmedabad’s Hindu and Jain temples too – especially the mesmerising Modhera Sun Temple.
