Tripoto.com
Duration: 3 Days
Expenditure 4000

One of my friend who is living in Ahemdabad for past years invited me to make a trip to to his city for a long. So this time instead of going to mountains I decided to accept the invitation and we are going to Ahemdabad.

We were all set by booking our train tickets and other related things. There are 2 daily trains from Old Delhi Station (DLI) to Ahemdabad Juntion (ADI):

1. Ashram Express - takes 15 hours

2. Rajhdhnai Express - takes 12 hours

Apart from these two, there are some weekly trains also. It's quite difficult to get confirm ticket on this route :P

Our train started at routine time i.e. 15:30 from Old Delhi station and we reached at Sabarmati Junction on the scheduled time, Sabarmati Junction is a station, which is just 15 min before the Ahemdabad Juntion. It's the same station which was shown in the movie "Kai Po Che", with the name "Ahemdabad Juntion". We stayed at my friend's home and he served us different type of Gujarati's dishes and they are superb.

After filling our empty stomach and having some rest we were ready to explore the Ahemdabad city. And we started from "Dandi Kutir".
