AMC Heritage Walk
The 600 years old city of Ahmedabad (1411 A.D) has some of the finest Indian-Islamic monuments and exquisite Hindu and Jain temples. Its carved wooden houses are another unique architectural tradition. To experience the glory of Ahmedabad it is necessary to walk through the `Walled City` and truly observe the nature of its rich and varied architecture, its art, religious places, its culture and traditions.With the purpose of unveiling this aspect of the city to the tourists and the citizens themselves The Heritage Walk of Ahmedabad was launched by the Amdavad Municipal Corporation (AMC) in association with CRUTA Foundation, an NGO, on 19th November 1997, during World Heritage Week.A special feature of Ahmedabad is the plan of the old city, comprising numerous `Pols`, self-contained neighborhoods, sheltering large numbers of people. Some of these `Pols` are virtually small villages, traversed by narrow lanes, usually terminating in squares (Chowks) comprising `Community Well` and `Chabutro` (for feeding birds). These `Pols` were protected by gates, cul-de-sacs and secret passages. These historic residential settlements are explained in detail during the walk.The walk commences from the early 19th century Swaminarayan temple Kalupur, encompasses 20 main spots besides numerous areas and aspects of the old city and concludes at the famous 15th century Jama Masjid. Hence the Walk is popularly known as the journey of `Mandir to Masjid`. The Walk, initiated more than one and a half decades ago, the first one of its kind by an Urban Local Body (ULB), has been continuing its journey with an unbroken record of 15 years and has lived up to its purpose of reviving the old city through rediscovery. The Ahmedabad model of Heritage Walk is being replicated in many other historic cities and towns of India like Jaipur, Amritsar, Lucknow etc. to conserve heritage and promote tourism.Adding dignity to what is old and giving it a place of pride in the city is the purpose behind the Heritage Walk conducted by Amdavad Municipal Corporation.
