The city is popular as the Manchester of the East as it is famous for its textile mills.
The history of Ahmedabad dates back to 15th century when it was known as Karnavati after the name of the King Karandev, the ruler of the place. Later when Sultan Ahmed Shah, medieval ruler of Gujarat, conquered the place it was renamed as Ahmedabad. The city was spacious and built to the east of Sabarmati. There is a fort known as Bhadra Fort which is enclosed by 12 gates. On both sides of the river, the city was expanded with beautiful structures and lakes.
