What should I know before visiting Ahmedabad?
Plan to eat vegetarian while visiting Ahmedabad
A huge population of people in Ahmedabad and the state of Gujarat are vegetarian, mainly for religious reasons. While it is possible to find restaurants serving meat in Ahmedabad, it’s not the norm. Embrace the local culture after your flights to Ahmedabad and try some of the delicious vegetarian dishes that are on offer, such as Gujarati thali and khandvi.
You will need a permit to purchase alcohol in Ahmedabad
The state of Gujarat is strict when it comes to alcohol. It is considered a dry state, but visitors are able to purchase alcohol after obtaining a permit. When preparing for your return flights to Ahmedabad, apply for this permit online if you’re hoping to have a few drinks on holiday. The permit costs 70 rupees (about $1.45 AUD) and is valid for a week.

What are the best things to do in Ahmedabad?
The Sabarmati Ashram is one of the top-rated attractions to visit when you have return flights to Ahmedabad. The ashram is famous for being one of Mahatma Gandhi’s residences between 1917 and 1930. If you visit the Sabarmati Ashram after your cheap flights to Ahmedabad, you can learn about Gandhi’s life and the impact he had on India. As well as seeing the cottage where Gandhi lived, you can visit a museum that highlights Gandhi’s life through paintings and photographs, texts, letters, and various other artefacts.
Sidi Bashir Mosque
Historians believe that this mosque was first built in 1452; unfortunately, it was partially destroyed in 1753 when a battle took place in the city. Today, visitors to the city can view the mosque’s central archway as well as the tall minarets, known as Jhulta Minar. When you book airfare to Ahmedabad, add this impressive landmark to your list of things to see. It’s located near Ahmedabad Junction railway station, and as trains pass by, visitors can observe the minarets vibrating. Sidi Bashir Mosque features a unique Mughal architectural style, which makes it stand out from other religious sites you’ll see after your cheap flights to Ahmedabad.
Calico Museum of Textiles
Ahmedabad is internationally recognised as one of the major textile hubs of India. The Calico Museum of Textiles was first opened in 1949 when the textile industry in the city was booming. While visiting the museum after your flights to Ahmedabad, you’ll see one of the world’s largest collections of antique Indian textiles. These textiles represent different periods in Ahmedabad’s history, and some of them date back more than 500 years. Exhibits feature textiles from the Mughal Empire, tie-dyed textiles from the 19th century, colourful furniture, and a wide range of religious textiles. In addition to viewing textiles after your flights to Ahmedabad, you can also explore the beautiful garden at the Calico Museum.
