Ahmedabad as world heritage city
ActIT Jammu, ASP.net Projects, Java, Vb.net, C# Training Jammu
Dear Editor,

Recently Ahmedabad City is clinched as world Heritage status by UNESCO. Our heritage is all that has been passed to us by previous generations. Cultural heritage is a legacy of physical artifacts and intangible attributes of a group or society – man-made heritage. Really one feels proud of being Amdavadi. There are many who are not aware about the various heritage places in Ahmedabad. The names of various places Monuments are found only in tourism maps and Websites. Ahmedabad rose in stature and soon began to be called the “Garden city of Hindustan”. It flourished during the steady reign of the Sultans.

The merchant class grew in affluence, and peace and stability began to attract a great number of people from surrounding areas. It is now the largest city in Gujarat and the seventh largest city in India. One would be surprised to know that Manek Chowk, named after Maneknath became the marketing complex of the new city. Kalupur, named after Begda’s minister Abba Haji Kalu, consists of a mixed population of Jains and Muslims. Usmanpura was a prosperous suburb during the Badshah period, specializing in the trade of ghee and local medicines.

The era of the Sultans in Gujarat has often been called the “Golden age of Ahmedabad”. Architecture has found its glory in Ahmedabad. Time has now come to make people aware about the precious ancient monuments through media and rapid campaign. Lastly, I would like to quote a well-know quotation from a poem by W. H. Davies “What is this life if full of care. We have no time to stand and stare!”
