Things to do in Ahmedabad
Sabarmati Ashram (or Gandhi Ashram or Satyagrah Ashram)
Sabarmati Ashram is located on the banks of the River Sabarmati in the Sabarmati suburb of Ahmedabad in Gujarat. It had served as the one of the residences of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi and his wife for nearly 12 years, and was also the launching pad for Gandhi’s famous Dandi March in 1930 that later went on to play a crucial role in India’s independence. The ashram also has a museum, the Gandhi Smarak Sangrahalaya with several thousand letters written to and by Gandhi, and his personal belongings. Common folklore assumes that it is located on a former site of an ancient Indian saint, Dadhichi Rishi who had donated his bones to the Gods.
The Jama Masjid (also known as Jami or Jumma Mosque) is a delightful piece of art and artisanship, both inside and outside. It is built with yellow sandstone and stands in the center of a large rectangular courtyard that offers three entrances to the mosque. Originally intended only for the royal family, this mosque is hallmarked by an inscription on one of its walls that says the mosque was inaugurated by Sultan Ahmad Shah I on January 4, 1424.

The Sidi Saiyyed Mosque (also known as Sidi Saiyyid ni Jali in Gujarati language) is a late 16th century marvel known for its exponential religious identity and remarkable architectural identity. It was built in the last year of the existence of Sultanate of Gujarat by Sidi Saiyyid. This mosque is hallmarked by its ten ornate windows that together flaunt latticework (or jalis in Gujarati) on the side and rear arches.
