Ahmedabad - Love at first sight

This is the place which I loved as soon as I set foot on the city. Though I visited this place long ago, this is one of my favourite city which I would like to visit again. On the bank of river Sabarmati lies a city Ahmedabad, locally known as Amdavad. The river Sabarmati bifurcates the city into eastern and western parts. This city has a great historical and cultural relevance. Oh! one cannot miss the cuisine of Ahmedabad, very famous for its  mouthwatering dishes in the country. It has a unique taste with different sweet flavour which we won't find in any other place. The food that will make you fall in love with it instantly.

I have tried to explain my love with this city in Drive, Design and Connect category along with some historical background.

Ahmedabad is the important city in Gujarat and has a number of industries. It is also well known for textile industries. The place is famous for its handicrafts and clothes mainly of traditional Gujarati dress that is famous all over the world. It is popularly called as "the Manchester of the East". This city is the hub of construction, communication and commerce. Apart from these, the city also holds a great importance in the academic front and has a number of educational institutes, one among them is Indian Institute of Management (IIM).

Ahmedabad was earlier known as Karnavati named after the ruler Karandev which dates back to 15th century. This was renamed as Ahmedabad after this place was conquered by Sultan Ahmed Shah. Initially city was built to the east of Sabarmati. Later the city was expanded with beautiful structures and lakes on both sides of the Sabarmati river. There are number of monuments which hold a great importance in the history of Ahmedabad. During the British rule modernization of the city took place.

Ahmedabad is a city having mix of tradition and modern. It has various malls,restaurants, temples and museums. Few of important places to visit are Kankaria Lake, Sardar Patel National Memorial, Sabarmati Ashram, Teen Darwaza, Akshardham Temple, Jama Masjid and few more places.

Ahmedabad is very well connected by road, rail and air. The city is  accessible from the major cities of India and it has an very good road connectivity by expressway, several national and state highways. This makes it easier for people staying nearby the main city to travel to and fro Ahmedabad. The city transportation system is mainly dependent on roadway systems. Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS) will be a lovely experience especially for tourist as it connects the most part of the city. There are few places which are not very well connected and the road network is not fully developed. Hope this will be addressed soon.
