After we had our dinner at U.S. Pizza, Navrangpura, we headed to Law Garden near Ellis Bridge. It is a night market selling traditional Navaratri clothes, Kurtis, Handicrafts and other souvenirs etc. The market is open until, say 11.00 pm, but depends on shop to shop. Some close at 9 pm, and some at 12 midnight. Do not forget bargaining!!! And just behind Law Garden market are the plethora of street food joints.
So, on our day 2, after our hectic schedule of Ahmedabad to Mehsana and then back to Ahmedabad, we took some time and explored the law garden area and their amazing display of night market. Seriously, it would have been shameful if we wouldnt have made this visit. On reaching there, we could see this never ending flea market full of colours, beautiful handicrafts, dupattas, block prints, chikankari, bandhani and so much more. All these things at so affordable prices that you are spoilt for choice. Pretty hand worked dupattas starting from just 150/- and chikankari kurtis as below as 200/-. God! Wow! There are so many amazing food stalls to relish and amuse your tongue.We spent about an hour in this flea market stretch which one can visit everyday from 7 P.M. onwards and unlike flea markets in Goa, these offer pure Gujarati handicrafts. We also went to the very famous Induben Khakrawala shop in Mithakali, just few kms away from Law garden. This place is again a must visit because of its immense variety of Gujarati snacks and you just can't miss their Bhakarwadis. Yummy! I swear!After our exploration, we were damn hungry, and as per a pre-determined plan, we went to the heaven of Gujarati Thali- Agashiye.Yes, it's the house of MG! Agashiye located centrally in the busy city streets, provide your eyes with amazing tentalizing views and most importantly the best, I repeat, the best Gujarati Thali in Ahmedabad. It's a heritage hotel cum restaurant. The food here was amazing and they serve only Gujarati thalis and different Thali every day. Ended up bursting and went straight to the hotel room to dump ourselves into our beds.
Shopping is absolutely heavenly here! Tapestries, ghagras, accessories, purses, shoes, you can find almost anything here with a touch of Gujarat. Make sure to bring along some locals to help you bargain with the prices!
