Heritage Walk of Ahmedabad
Ahmedabad, Gujrat, India
The daily heritage walk is a delightful experience for all types of visitors. It's literally a window to the city and its history. Over here, discoveries are made while walking around the narrow serpentine lanes of the old city. Like a 400-year-old Jain Temple that was actually built underground to save it from being demolished by Aurangzeb's generals! The walk takes you through Ahmedabad's famous 'Pols' - gated housing societies where all the houses belong to people of a particular family, caste, profession, religion etc. Many of the pols were built between 100 to 300 years ago.
