Shopping in Ahmedabad - Wedding

Dear forum Experts

Can you help me out on a few question i have.

I have been to Ahmedabad around 5 years ago, but talking to a few people here in the UK i have been told that the city has change. I am coming over during Nov/Dec to attend a wedding and also do some shopping for my brother wedding.

I just wanted to know what the best area to buy

Sari's

Costume jewellery

Kuras

Shalwar Kameez (wedding outfit for my brother, and outfits for the brothers)

Wedding invites

I only had 16 days so really wanted to know the best places or area to buy such items. We will be staying near the Himalaya Mall off Drive in road.

any advice would be most helpful

Many Thanks

Living a dream

Hi living a dream

The best local market is at Ratanpod, dilli darwaja, relief road..

Exclusive shop for sari/salwar kameez are- asopalav and deepkala at ashram road , Nehru bridge corner.. Very famous . Any autorikshaw will take you there..

Drive inn road is also a good market area.also search at CG road, navrangpura.

If you are staying near himalaya mall then do try lunch/ dinner at barbeque nation there.

There is also a branch of Aishwariya (of Mumbai) in Ahmedabad. I would suggest going there for wedding shopping also. Recommend thalis at Gordhans too.
