Description: On the ancient site of Ashaval and Karnawati, Ahmedabad was founded in 1411. It has some of the finest Indian Hindu, Jain and Islamic Monuments. Its carved wooden houses are another unique architectural tradition.

A special feature of Ahmedabad is the plan of old city, comprising of numerous pols, self contained neighbourhoods, sheltering large number of people. Some of these pols are virtually small villages, traversed by narrow streets, usually terminating in squares with community wells and chabutaras for feeding birds. These pols were protected by gates and secret passages. With the purpose of unveiling the city to the tourists and the citizens themselves, Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation with guidance from the CRUTA Foundation has planned this HERITAGE WALK OF AHMEDABAD.

Heritage Walk commences at Swaminarayan Temple, Kalupur at 8.00 am Monday to Sunday and Terminates at 10.00 am at Manek Chowk. A special slide show is arranged at Kalupur Swaminarayan Temple describing history of Ahmedabad City. Heritage walk takes 2 hours but the walking distance is just 2-4 kms. Fees for Heritage walk ranges from Rs. 20 to Rs. 50. Nasta Pani is not available in Heritage walk.
