Ahmedabad Heritage Tour - An Introduction to the Ancient City

What is Ahmedabad Heritage Tour

Like Delhi and Hyderabad, there is an ancient city in Ahmedabad, which is still living in the same period of ancient times. So now "What is Ahmedabad Heritage Tour"? It is An Introduction to the Ancient City. These ancient places take you back to the old times when these cities were being newly constructed and where they were slowly developing. These areas have their own special identity which is evident from the environment there.

The biggest feature of Ahmedabad is the housing system of this ancient city which makes it unique. Diverse communities live independently here, but they are still tied together.

Every day, the heritage journey of Ahmedabad is organized by the AhmedabadMunicipal Corporation, which takes you to the old parts of the city. They have become very adept at this task while organizing these trips for years.

The experience associated with the heritage journey of Ahmedabad

What is Ahmedabad Heritage Tour

The yatra begins with the Kalupur Swaminarayan Temple, which is located right in the middle of the city. If you wish, you can reach there a little before 8 in the morning and enjoy the hot and hot breakfast found at the shops outside the temple. The Fafda you get served with papaya sauce and Jalebi must be eaten.

Before beginning this padyatra, travelers are shown a small movie based on the heritage of this temple. A travel brochure is also given so that they do not face any problem during the journey.

Poet Dalpat Rai's house

The first stop of this journey is the house of poet Dalpat Rai, where there is nothing but the front yard, in which there is an open courtyard where a large statue of him stands. Our guide explained to us in detail about his life and his philosophical thoughts and also how this courtyard has tried to keep him alive.

Platform of birds (Chabutro)

Walking through the streets of Ahmedabad, we were shown platforms of many types of birds. These platforms looked like some trees, which could not be seen anywhere in these overlapping streets.

What is Ahmedabad Heritage Tour - chabutro

This old city of Ahmedabad is divided into residential groups, where some special communities live. These communities are formed either on the basis of caste, or on the basis of religion or occupation, or on the basis of a combination of these three.

There are some secret routes here that connect these habitats to each other like a puzzle. It is impossible for any outsider to explain these paths, which proves very convenient in the event of an attack. Seeing this type of construction here, I got the idea that invasions and battles have always been an inexhaustible part of the culture of the city; Due to this, they had to use this method in residential parts also, as is often the case in the royal palaces.

Ramji Temple - Haveli Temple

What is Ahmedabad Heritage Tour - ramji mandir

We saw about 450 years old Ramji temple in Ahmedabad which is also known as Haveli temple. The doer of this temple - the extended joint family of the temple still resides here. This family temple is also open to the general public. The wooden structures here that still bear the weight of this mansion are truly admirable.

Ashtapadi Jain Temple

What is Ahmedabad Heritage Tour - jain temple

Ashtapadi Jain Temple is very beautiful whose typical Jain architecture is admirable. During this time our tour guide told us about the unique rainwater harvesting system that can preserve the available consumable rainwater for the whole year. You will be surprised to see this random structure, in which many methods are hidden in the structure.
Here, not only rainwater is collected, but with the use of lime and copper piping, it is harvested in such a way that its usefulness remains and it is free from any kind of animal or disease. Sometimes I wonder why and where we have lost this commonly available intelligence of our ancestors, who had some local and easy solutions to our every need.

As we reach the final stop, this walk continues through the markets, where the shopkeepers are seen opening their shop and starting their day. Like other ancient places of India, there are some interesting stories attached to this place, but this time I will not share these stories with you so that you can enjoy them when you go there.

Walking through these markets, our guides asked us to look carefully at the various objects of wood carved here, in which the sources of many stories were engraved. As you can see the effects of various places of the world engraved on these objects. Often the shapes of these items are a sign of their prestige.

Jami Masjid

The last stop of this padyatra is the Jami Masjid, 200 years older than the Taj Mahal, possibly built on an ancient temple.

Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation has put up small information panels on the entire route of this heritage journey, which gives you detailed information about the various places here. So that if you go on this journey by yourself, then you can easily understand the information related to that place.
