Embark on an authentic Amdavadi shopping spree at Lal Darwaza market in Ahmedabad
The city of culture and traditional modalities merging with modernities but in a way that doesn't let its historical relevance die out — Ahmedabad brims with wonders to be appreciated always.
The Gujarat city has numerous large markets running in its embrace that keep enhancing its value and act as huge pockets of social activity. And just one of the very popular names is Lal Darwaza market.
All about the famed Lal Darwaza Market
Known for the historical value of the backdrop of the Old city's Lal Darwaza that engulfs the 1573 Sidi Saiyyed Mosque, the market is famed for its mouth-watering Mughlai food, traditional clothing and artefacts, handicrafts, toys, jewellery, electronics, books, among others.
While the Lal Darwaza reminds a peregrinator of the 16th century architectural prowess, the market gifts to them street-food stalls, various eating joints, and loads to shop from. Hosted in the narrow lanes of the Old City area, the market is the perfect place for shopaholics to test their haggling skills.
The fact that the market shops are extremely economical results in the shopping hub being frequented by thongs of visitors. Crowded at most times of the day, you can embark here on a genuine Amdavadi shopping spree, whilst gorging on pani puris, samosas, dhoklas and more!
All-in-one social hub
The Lal Darwaza market is, thus, one place where one can find social intricacies, cultural beauty, architectural accomplishments, and historical narratives all in one place!
