AHMEDABAD HISTORY

Ahmedabad has been inhabited since the 11th century, when it was known as Ashapalli or Ashaval. Ahmedabad was built in an open and spacious plain in the immediate vicinity of Ashaval to the east of Sabarmati. It then comprised a smaller now known as the Bhadra Fort or the citadel of Bhadra. Conditions of the province were chaotic in the time of Sultan Muzaffar III. Akbar, the great Moghul emperor, started out the Gujarat expedition and conquered it in 1573.Though Ahmedabad lost its importance as the capital of Gujarat during Moghul reign, it retained its importance as one of the thriving centres of trade in the country and chief city of Gujarat.
