Old town, Ahmedabad

This is in the ´pols' of Ahmedabad. The ´pols' are enclosed areas containing people either people of the same ´caste´ or ´trade'. They are hidden in the maze of the old city, with each pol having it´s own guarded entrance. Some have secret doors that link them to the rest of the city.

They are fascinating areas to wander around. The people are friendly and life goes on as it has probably gone on for the past couple of centuries.
