The state's commercial, if not political hub, Ahmedabad stands as a sprawling metropolis with some important historical sites.
You'll get in some beach time at Kankaria Lake and Sabarmati Riverfront. Escape the urban bustle at Indroda Nature Park and Thol Lake Bird Sanctuary. Get out of town with these interesting Ahmedabad side-trips: Nalsarovar Bird Sanctuary (in Nalsarovar), Shree Ranchhodray Ji Mandir (in Kheda) and Gandhinagar (Aalloa Hills Resort, Adalaj Trimandir, & more). The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Akshardham, examine the collection at Auto World Vintage Car Museum, steep yourself in history at Sabarmati Ashram / Mahatma Gandhi's Home, and delve into the distant past at Lothal.
