The walled city of Ahmadabad, founded by Sultan Ahmad Shah in the fifteenth century, lies on the eastern bank of the Sabarmati River. It presents rich architectural heritage from the sultanate period, notably the Bhadra citadel, the walls and gates of the Fort city and numerous mosques and tombs, as well as important Hindu and Jain temples of later periods. The urban fabric is made up of densely packed traditional houses (pols) in gated traditional streets (puras) with characteristic features such as bird feeders, public wells and religious institutions. The city has continued to flourish as the capital of the State of Gujarat for the last six centuries up to the present day.

The participants of UNESCO WHV 2019 will organize and take part in different awareness raising actions, from heritage walk to classes, quizzes, musical evenings, camp fire, discovering food, paintings and art performances with local youth, school students and community representatives.
