Sabarmati river Ahmedabad.Ahmedabad was founded by Sultan Ahmed Shah on the banks of River Sabarmati in 1411 A.D.

Sultan Ahmed Shah graced his kingdom with splendid monuments, mosques, pavilions and mausoleums, marking the beginning of the Indo-Saracenic style of architecture. Modern day Ahmedabad, the capital of the State of Gujarat is the largest city and a leading industrial centre in Gujarat. It is also the sixth largest in India. But Ahmedabad has a lot more to offer visitors.
