Explore the five separate halls with over 200 idols of Hindu Gods, and the exhibition hall with displays reflecting central ideas of Hindu culture and values. Next, head to Sidi Saiyyed Mosque and marvel at its arc-shaped architecture. See the beautiful artwork in the mosque, including the Tree of Life, and the lattice stone window, adopted by the reputed Indian Institute of Ahmedabad.

Mr. Shah was an amazing tour guide, being sure to explain each temple thoroughly and the significance of the details and history of each attraction. The driver was prompt and very friendly making the whole experience pleasant and feeling secured. I highly recommend the tour to anyone who is interested in learning more about the local religions, temples, and attractions in the Ahmedabad area.
