The range includes tribal, traditional and contemporary jewellery from various regions in India -- Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Gujerat, Tamil Nadu, and Kashmir.

Food And Drink

Food And Drink

Gujeratis love their food so there are restaurants on every street in Ahmedabad. The locals are mainly vegetarians but with the influx of international and domestic food chains non-vegetarian cuisine has gained in popularity. The highpoint for food for tourists is the traditional ‘thali’. It consists of a range of salads, appetizers, snacks, breads, pulses, vegetable curries and sweets – all served in one big tray. 

If you are the experimental type, try one of the road side stalls at Manekchawk or the Khau Galli in Law Garden area. Various stalls only open in the evening and stay open till late at night. Don’t forget to ask for local favourites like Paani - Puri (Gol Gappa), Indian Chat and Sandwiches. There’s even North Indian, Indo-Chinese and continental dishes on offer.
