Ahmedabad’s Municipal Corporation runs a daily walking tour through the old city, starting at 8am (show up at 7.45am) at the Swaminarayan Temple and finishing at the Jama Masjid around 10.30am. Meandering through the narrow streets is an excellent way to get a feel for old Ahmedabad with its 600 pols – nook-like neighbourhoods with common courtyards, wells and chabutaras (bird-feeding towers).

Tours are in English and there’s a brief slideshow beforehand. Wear slip-on footwear, as you’ll be visiting plenty of temples.
