Heritage Plaza

The linear plaza is located along the fort wall between Nehru Bridge and Ellis Bridge on the east. With the historic backdrop of the fort wall, heritage structures and monuments such as Bhadra Fort, Ahmedshah Mosque, Siddi Sayyed Mosque and Bhadrakali Temple in the vicinity, the plaza is strategically located within the historic context. It has been envisioned as a pedestrian public space with outdoor exhibits to represent the rich and diverse heritage of Ahmedabad, making it a central tourist destination for the city.

The plaza has been planned in integration with the River Promenade through a series of ghats and platforms that step up to meet the fort wall. The multi-level plaza can be used for various activities simultaneously. The lowest level of the plaza can be used by people walking or sitting by the water, the mid level as a theatre for street performances while the upper level provides a space for organized vending. The east riverfront street in this stretch remains continuous via a tunnel. The plaza shall largely be “hard landscape” with provisions for installation of sculptures, exhibits, pavilions that present the rich and diverse heritage of Ahmedabad, making it a central tourist destination for the city.
