About Amdavad ni Gufa

Hussain Doshi Gufa is a unique underground art gallery in Ahmedabad that is home to a large body of works done by the famous Indian painter M.F. Hussain. Designed by the famous architect B. V. Doshi, the gallery takes its name after the two geniuses of the art world in India- Hussain and Doshi. It is more popularly known as Amdavad ni Gufa, owing to its cave-like designing and structure. It was built by unskilled workers using simple hand tools but was designed using new technology. Although designed to display paintings, the cave lacks straight walls and instead uses a continuation of the curved structure that extends down to the floor. The inside structure is very similar to the ones in natural caves, with the domes supported by irregularly shaped inclined columns that look like tree trunks. These underground spaces are lit up from the light that seeps in through the snouts on the roofs, moving with the progress of the day and creating a beguiling effect.
