Modern with Religious, Gujarat visit

If you wish to see the development of Gujarat and its diverse culture you must head for Ahmedabad. Ahmedabad is the biggest city of Gujarat it's approximately 36km from Ghandhinagar the capital city of Gujarat. The drive is very smooth and fast. In Ahmedabad you can visit various malls and temples. Ghandi Ashram and Jain Temple are one of the most visited Spots. I recommend to travel Jain Temple during Proper day light so that all the sculptures are properly visible, photography is prohibited. There is no guide available in Ashram, but you can get all the required information from the people who give volunteer service. Ashram contains very few original historical items, but it is a must watch. I recommend to travel Ashram during the evening time so you can view the beautiful river front and the city.

During night visit the lake in Ahmedabad, you can enjoy some crazy and adventure rides and there is variety of food available, unfortunately there is no paddle or personal speed boating available, but you can enjoy the water in some boats. You can visit Science city which is located nearly 10km from Ahmedabad, it contains various models related to science, I highly recommend this place. You can also watch some nice short movies in IMAX 3D just for 100 bugs. Positively visit Akshardham Temple in outskirts of Ghandhinagar. You can use this guide if you wish to travel Ahmedabad in a day or two. I recommend to take OLA cab there rates are not that high, autos are sometime heavily charged when visit the science city take care of your way to return to the city as less auto's are available. I someone offers you a guide at Ashram, I recommend to avoid it.
