Municipal Corporation information
The Municipal Corporation runs fascinating heritage walking tours through the old city. They start from the Swaminarayan Temple in Kalupur at 8am and finish near the Jama Masjid around 10.30am. It’s advisable to book. The tours, through narrow, confusing streets and past dilapidated, carved wooden houses, are an excellent way to get a feel for the city and its pols (gated neighbourhoods). Commentaries are given in English and there’s a brief slide show beforehand.
