Your home away from home, the Dodhia Haveli, is a picturesque and artistically furnished
wooden heritage house situated in the very heart of Ahmedabad’s Old Quarter. To live here is like going back in time to the city’s rich cultural history when society used to live in the old city quarters called “pols”. These were built during the times of high communal tension and social unrest in the region, hundreds of
years ago. Pols are a conglomeration of houses inhabited by people and families who are linked together with caste, culture or profession. Intricately carved wooden facades with colourful exteriors, these pols were strategically built for safety during war. Since those early times, pols have evolved further and have given way to a livelier urban ambience. Most people residing in these pols belong to the cottage industry sector and can be found working in their courtyards. Surrounded by these very pols is Dodhia Haveli, a splendidly decorated haveli, easily accessible from Kalupur
