So, I decided to do a 4 day trip to Baroda, I had heard a lot about this city and was very keen on exploring the city myself !
I took a flight from Bengaluru to Ahmedabad and landed at around 8AM (there are direct flights to Baroda from Bengaluru). I chose to land in Ahmedabad , so that I could do a quick tour of Ahmedabad city as well.
I first visited the Sabarmati Ashram, located on the banks of the river Sabarmati. It’s a calm and peaceful ashram which is said to be one of the places where Mahatma Gandhi used to live in. It is also believed that he led the Salt Satyagraha from this Ashram.
This Ashram has the Gandhi Smarak Sangrahalaya, a museum, Gandhiji’s cottage, Hridaya Kunj, a library, painting gallery, and much more. If you are someone who loves history, this place is absolutely worth the visit! The Ashram opens at 9 am and the right time to visit this Ashram would be early morning, so that you would not have to witness a huge crowd.
