Located on the banks of the Sabarmati river, Ahmedabad or Amdavad as it’s colloquially called, is the 7th largest Urban area in India with a population of over 6 million. It’s the only city in India which has been accorded the status of UNESCO World Heritage city (for the old city area). Ahmedabad is a perfect blend of beautiful architecture and town planning of the heritage city, as well as the energy and business friendly face of its modern counterpart. Ahmedabad never ceases to amaze you with its delectable variety of street food, sumptuous Gujarati thali places, warmth of the people and the overall rustic charm that it retains even in a rapidly changing cityscape.

This bustling manufacturing city of nearly seven million people is both Gujarat's capital and the state's largest population centre. As an Indian big city it features all of the undesirable qualities that Indian cities are known for -- overcrowding, noise, pollution, traffic -- but featuring on very few tourists' radar, it's also a place to see India 'unpackaged' for Western consumption, with very little of the hassle you'll find in the nation's other metropolises. Many people simply pass through Ahmedabad on the way to somewhere else, but get past the negatives and the city has some great architectural and historical spots to explore, though be aware that being the capital of a dry state, there isn't much of a rollicking nightlife scene.
