It was a very informative trip to the Calico Museum of textiles. I have visited many museum and houses of art but never witnessed anything as was displayed in the Textile Museum of Calico. Once our trip to the museum was done we headed for another location on our list which was Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Memorial. It is an important attraction and memorial located in the city.

This memorial is located in the Shahibaug area of the city and locally famous as Moti Shah Mahal. The main attraction of the memorial is the various pictures and images of Vallabhbhai Patel from his childhood till his death. Vallabh Bhai Patel was a very important person during the Indian National Movement and even after independence played a pivotal role for the unification of India as a single republic.
This memorial serves as a perfect tribute for this great person. The lawns of the museum are all green and full of pea cock and peahens. We took a lot of pictures of the birds while taking a stroll in its lovely lush green gardens. There were abundant Peacocks in the gardens dancing and running all around. The sight of them thrilled all of us. These birds are very hard to find in Chandigarh. There is a section inside the museum which also contains the flag of India which was designed by the Indian national Congress.

An open theatre is also there which showcases documentaries on the life of Sardar Patel and other Indian revolutionaries. Those who are interested about the life and times of Sardar Patel and also interested in his personal life can make a visit to the museum and get a lot of knowledge. It is a good place which documents the entire struggle and service that Sardar Patel has made for this country.
This was a very informative visit again. After this visit we headed to have some lunch at any famous eatery of Ahmedabad. After which we went for our next visit which was the Sabarmati Ashram, the home of Gandhi and the place where Gandhi controlled and directed the Indian National movement.
