History of Ahemdabad

Ahmedabad, the sixth largest city in India is the major commercial center of Gujarat with a population of more than 5 million. Sultan Ahmed Shah decided to make the city its capital because of a strange incident he witnessed here. As per a historical anecdote, once Sultan saw a rabbit attacking one of his hunter dogs. This incident made him realize that if the rabbits of this area were so courageous, then the people must be braver. Thus, he established Ahmedabd as a kingdom on the banks of River Sabarmati in 1411.
