Description

Come and join me for a walk to the old parts of Ahmedabad, India's first World Heritage City. We will begin this Online Experience from the beautiful temple of Kalupur Swaminarayan, the first temple of the Swaminarayan sect to have been built when the British colonial government sanctioned land for it in 1822. The temple is believed to be a valuable cultural heritage in the socio-religious history of Gujarat and India.
After exploring the temple, we will go for a heritage walk and explore old wooden "Havelis" or townhouses, all of which are between 100 and 200 years old and yet intact despite having survived several earthquakes and calamities. During our walk, you will also get to observe the local life of people in Gujarat and see how customs are observed in traditional surroundings. We will also make our way to the local market, which is bustling and full of colours - a real treat for eyes that are not yet used to it.
