Ahmedabad, The actual capital of Gujarat
Being centrally located in the state of Gujarat, Ahemedabad, experiences extreme climates. It is very hot during summers and quite cool in winters.
A major industrial city of India, Ahemedabad ad is famous for its exquisite handicraft items and Bandhej Textiles. It is famous for its beautiful Indo-Saracenic architectural structures and more recently for the devastating earthquake. The educational institutions of Ahemedabad are like the Indian Institute of management, and the National Institute of Design are supposed to be one of the best in the country.
The city derives its name from the founder of the city Ahemed Shah, who built it as his capital in 1411 A.D. Although the Mughal Emperor Jehangir called it as the city of dust; Gardabad, it was known as one of the finest cities of India by the 17th century. Ahemedabad, rather the whole of Gujarat, has been the melting pot of various tribes, therefore the people of Gujarat and mainly Ahemedabad as it has been the capital for many years, have been a mixture of various creeds, tribes and castes. The e Aryans came and also came, the Persians, Arabs and the Africans. This mixture of cultures though has not deviated the Gujarati from their food habbits and language.
Ahemedabad truly is a visitor's delight. Right from historical monuments to the recent developments, from relic past to futuristic approach, one can find everything here. To top on that are the beautiful jewellery designs and lip smacking food that Ahemedabad offers.
