Major Places to Visit in Ahmedabad

Lalbhai Dalpatbhai Museum: Ever since its inception in 1956, the Institute has been collecting and preserving rare manuscripts and artifacts of various kinds. The Museum is the product of the vision and energy of the two remarkable persons who were responsible for its establishment: Muni Shri Punyavijayji, an erudite monk scholar, and Sheth Kasturbhai Lalbhai, the well known industrialist of Ahmedabad. As the collection grew over the years the Board of Trustees of the Institute felt strongly the need for a separate museum building to house the display of its collection. Consequently, a new museum building was built as an annexe to the existing building which was also designed by the internationally acclaimed architect Shri Balkrishnabhai Doshi. The collection in the new museum building was opened to the public in 1984.
