About Ahmedabad

Statue of Unity, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel

Ahmedabad is a the city that has the beautiful Sabarmati river flowing down, dividing the city into east and west, old and new. The Rann of Kutch being not too far away, the outskirts of the city contain many step wells that attract tourists and history buffs. The city comes alive most during the kite festival, filling the dull and lazy January sky with colourful kites soaring high. Located in the suburbs, is also the Sabarmati Ashram. These elements gives the city the right blend of culture and modernity making it as the natural choice for the ‘Curiosity Path’.
