Exploring the walled city of Ahmedabad – Walk from Bhadra Fortress to Akha Bhagat Chowk

A walk through the area that’s responsible for laying the foundation of Ahmedabad! Bhadra Fortress, built around 1411 CE has witnessed several important events from the birth of Ahmedabad to the war between the Marathas and the Mughals and its subsequent conquest by the British. Used as a royal residence, guest house and prison over a period of time, the area from Bhadra to Teen Darwaja was once a royal square with sprawling gardens and palm trees. Witness how the area today has transformed into an expansive marketplace. There’s also a story with a strong cultural belief around it! Hear it out while you walk through and let your imagination go back in time. The area outside the Teen Darwaja was for the commoners and accommodates important spots such as the Jumma Masjid—the grand Friday Mosque, the vibrant Manek Chowk and labyrinthine Pols full of stories and magnificent havelis, the bejeweled old houses that are subjects of study by modern architects and artists.

Walk through the palimpsest of the spectacular walled city and be a spectator to the blend of the modern and traditional lifestyles of Ahmedabad.

This guided tour is for free.
