About Ahmedabad

A brief Description

Ahmedabad was originated by Sultan Ahmed Shah, the ruler of the Muzaffarid dynasty, to assist the capital city of his regime, which almost protect the modern Gujarat under its suzerainty. Ancient times, mainly by evidence stated by the Archaeological institutions in India, suggests that the area was ruled by Solanki rulers and Vaghela dynasty at different periods of time from the eleventh century to the thirteenth century. Placed on the banks of Sabarmati River, the Ahmedabad city derives it’s name from its founder Sultan Ahmad Shah. The Muzaffarid dynasty which lasted till the annexation of the area by the Mughal rulers in 1573 was accepted with the fortification of the city under Mahmud Begada, the grandson of Ahmed Shah. The Ahmedabad city developed into an outstanding business centre developed exporting goods mainly textile products to Europe and other parts of world during the Mughal period.

The Mughal legacy of the Ahmedabad city is studied in several monuments built in the period and are even seen today including MotiShahMahal in Shahibaug. The Maratha force grabbed the city in 1758 and Ahmedabad became a bone of content between the two rival factions of Maratha race, namely the Gaekwad of Baroda and the Peshwa of Poona. The British conquerors entered the city of Ahmedabad and acquired it from the Marathas in 1818 and later, a part of it was used for defence purposes. The establishment of a municipal corporation and the rail link between Bombay has played a vital role for making Bombay the major city in India today. The textile industry got a further growth from these progressive movements and a large number of people started to migrate in search of jobs in any of the various garment,industry.

Post-Independence, a large chunk of region commanded by the Gujarat- speaking people was carved out of the former state of Bombay to create a new state of Gujarat in 1960 and the city of Ahmedabad was chosen to service as its working capital. Later the capital was switched to Gandhi Nagar, Ahmedabad city planned on modern lines to function well as the capital of the state. Yet the importance of Ahmedabad as the chief merchandising centre remained intact and it is still the major commercial focus of the state. Its burgeoning population and expanding edges have placed it among the most prominent cities of the country.
