Top Places To Visit 170 Spots
October 01st, 2016 was the day when we were supposed to leave our respective destinations. We reached Ahmedabad within 1 hour and 15 minutes and thereafter left for the hotel. The journey for the hotel was a good 45-50 minutes but I must say it was worth it. We checked into Hotel Grand O7. This is a humongous 250 acres property located on the outskirts of Ahmedabad, near Bopal 444. My room was located on the 11th Floor and the view from the room was breathtaking. Without much adieu go ahead and check out the images of the hotel and thereafter we will speak about my trip further:
Sabarmati Ashram / Mahatma Gandhi's Home
Lying on the western banks of the River Sabarmati, this ashram is a peaceful heaven that is situated at a distance of 5 kilometres from Ahmedabad city. This ashram was founded by the great man himself, Mahatma Gandhi in 1915 as he struggled to free the country from the reins of the British Empire. It is from this place that Mahatma Gandhi carried forward his persistent struggle and garnered much support for the March of 1930 towards Dandi. The ashram is filled with items that were used by Gandhiji such as his khadi spinning wheels and, handicrafts and handmade paper.
Also called Amdavad, this place happened to be the former capital of the state of Gujarat. The third largest of all the cities in the state, it is situated on the banks of the famous Sabarmati River and happens to be the industrial and economic hub of the state. The Ahmedabad Stock Exchange is also the second oldest one in the country and the city second when it comes to cotton production. There are some very famous places like the Sabarmati Ashram and Kankaria Lake that one can visit when in Ahmedabad.
