About Ahmedabad

Ahmedabad is Gujarat’s leading city and was the state capital until 1970. It is located on the banks of the Sabarmati River, 30 km from the state capital Gandhinagar. Legend has it that the city owes its foundation to Sultan Ahmed Shah (1411-42), who built his new capital at banks of river and named it after himself – Ahmedabad. It was said that Ahmedabad hung on three threads: gold, silk and cotton. The city’s present prominence is due to largely to one family of textile magnates, the Sarabhais, who were patrons of the arts and supporters of Mahatma Gandhi - the supreme leader of Indian independence movement. After independence, Ahmedabad became a provincial town of Bombay (now named as Mumbai) and on May 1, 1960 it became a state capital as a result of the bifurcation of the state of Bombay into two states of Maharashtra and Gujarat. The city is divided into old and new by the Sabarmati river.
