About the walk

The walled city of Baroda is testimony to the city’s medieval history prior to the rule of Gaekwads. What is now a bustling market area was once a part of the fort city called Kila-e-Daulatabad, part of the Gujarat Sultanate. Although the fort walls no longer exist, the four gates constructed in the four directions stand even today.  

Today, though the market is a popular destination for locals and tourists alike, its historical significance is conveniently ignored. The walk will cover the Mandvi Gate, Baroda Central Library, Sarkarwada, Champaner Gate, Lehripura Gate, Nyay Mandir and end at Sur Sagar Lake. The walk is an attempt to highlight the significance of the region in view of its rich history.

This guided tour is free.
