Khadia

The intensity of Ahmedabad may be a bit daunting at first, but behind the bustling markets you find a living labyrinth of surprisingly quiet streets. The city is home to more than 500 pols, intimate neighbourhoods grouped around a central courtyard, a temple and a birdfeeder. Hidden in these pols you find the city’s inner secrets. It is where people of different faiths and castes live together in harmony based on the powerful mantra of ‘Mahajan’, a custom of shared wellbeing. This unique concept was championed by the mighty Shah sultan who founded the city six centuries ago. Even today we can witness the city’s glorious past in the many exquisite temples and stunning havelis with handcrafted wooden sculptures in all colours of the rainbow.

🇮🇳 #iDiscoverAhmedabad: “When somebody asks me where to go to in #Ahmedabad, I say ‘let’s go to the old city’. It’s a place of creative inspiration."⁣⁣
⁣⁣
In the @unesco-listed old city of Ahmedabad, we were lucky enough to work with many exceptional creative locals. Self-taught illustration artist @maitri_dalicha is one of them: she designed a beautiful map pointing to the hidden treasures in #Khadia, one of the most captivating hoods that encapsulates the culture and traditions of the walled city. Wonder how she did it? Or what she loves about local life? ⁣⁣
