Ahmedabad is located in the state of Gujarat in India. The city is fondly called as Amdavad. It is a tiny metropolis in itself. Situated on the bank of the river Sabarmati, the city partly reflects ancient appeal and magic and also the busy life of a city. It is a cosmopolitan city by nature. It has a intense and deep Muslim history. This ancient city has been spectacularly reinstated to a very fine place, with intriguing museums, amazing dining places and spectacular night time markets. The city of Ahmedabad acts as a gateway for the rest of the state of Gujarat. An interesting occasion is the time of Makar Sankranti, which is hosted by the city during the month of January. It is basically a kite festival in an international scale. It is worth making the trip to this place to watch the vibrant kites.
