Calico Museum of Textiles
Housing one of the best textile collections in the world, the Calico Museum of Textiles is Ahmedabad’s most noteworthy museum. Laid out across several rooms and galleries, the museum contains handmade textiles spanning five centuries, along with 19th century regional embroideries, religious and tie-n-dye textiles, royal garments, tribal costumes and miniature paintings. It also houses an incredible collection of Jain art and sculpture, and South Indian bronzes. There is also a library for those who wish to delve deep into the history of Indian textiles. Visitors can check out this beautiful collection via guided tour. A single tour is available everyday, and visitors are required to pre-register for it – either through the website or telephone.
