The Gateway to Gujarat
Ahmedabad, capital of the state of Gujarat, lies on the bank of river Sabarmati. Long reknowned for its booming textile industry, the place has earned itself the title ‘Manchester of the East’. While Ahmedabad has its own attractions, it is also a gateway to the colour and vibrance of the rest of Gujarat.
Quick Facts
