Ahmadabad Travel Guide, India

Ahmedabad holds the 7th largest population amongst various metropolitan areas of India and it is the largest city within the state of Gujarat (a state of India). Ahmedabad enjoyed the status of being the capital of Gujarat between 1960 and 1970 but later on Gandhinagar (the planned city of Gujarat which is located in the proximity of Ahmedabad) was given the status of being the capital of Gujarat. Since then, Gandhinagar has been the capital of Gujarat. Ahmedabad is called as Amdavad by the locals of Gujarat.

The state of Gujarat was formed in 1960 and Ahmedabad was named its capital in those days. It was after the formation of Gujarat and the status of capital city that helped Ahmedabad grow as a metropolitan city. Soon it became the hub of commercial and political happenings of the state. In its early years, Ahmedabad was considered a city full of dusty roads and old style houses but now it is experiencing a complete turnaround in its luck that has helped Ahmedabad gain recognition on national level.

Ahmedabad lies in an area of around 200 square kilometers.The city is full of dust and you are bound to find dust on road sides etc. which is a proof of intense deforestation. Research proves that Rann Of Kutch is slowly expanding and it has now started to touch Ahmedabad. If this continues then soon the land of Ahmedabad will become famous as a desert area. Ahmedabad lies on seismic zone 3rd and it has faced many earthquakes in the past that were responsible for taking many lives.

Like the rest of India, Ahmedabad also experiences three kinds of seasons namely monsoon, summer, and winter. Between the months of March and June Ahmedabad experiences hot seasons. During these months, the highest average temperature can reach 36 degree Celsius while the minimum can go down to 23 degree Celsius. Months between November and February are dry enough. January is the month when winter arrives due to the northerly winds. Monsoon cracks on the city between the months of mid-June and mid-September. The average rainfall during this season is around 93 cm. Ahmedabad has faced floods many times in the past due to the River Sabarmati.
