The House of MG: About Us
Seth Mangaldas Girdhardas was one of the most prolific businessmen of Ahmedabad, a tall order, considering how entrepreneurial and enterprising the people of this city are. He built his house in 1924 and it immediately captured the imagination of the city.
After many years of neglect, the scion of the MG family, Abhay Mangaldas took it upon himself to restore the house to its former glory, and two other heritage sites along with it. Collectively, they create a rarely unique hotel experience in the first world heritage city of India: Ahmedabad
The House of MG
When Ahmedabad was chosen as the first UNESCO heritage city of India, it was not because of the urban structures. It was buildings like this haveli that prompted UNESCO to confer such a prestigious title upon the city. Built right in the heart of the 600-year-old neighbourhoods, only known as the ‘pols’, this haveli is a beacon of the times forgotten. A ten-minute ride from The House of MG, this property is surrounded by Juma Masjid and plethora of ancient temples and monuments.
