About Sanskar Kendra

A classic example of modernist design, the Sanskar Kendra, Ahmedabad is a cultural center of the capital city. Aimed to cherish the living heritage of the region and preserve the architecture, the Sanskar Kendra was established in 1954. The museum exhibits art, culture, history and the architecture of the city. The Sanskar Kendra celebrates the legacy of Ahmedabad and the spirit of the residents. The VastuShilpa Foundation is responsible for preserving and maintaining the museum and is working hard for the same. You can see various sculptures, remnants, and history of Gujarat at the museum in various forms such as texts, photographs, and illustrated panels. The museum also showcases the relics of the life of Mahatma Gandhi. It also houses the world’s tallest incense stick and is 4.5 m high. It also has the foundation block of Ellis Bridge. Another striking feature at the museum is the Kite Museum which is also a part of the Sanskar Kendra. The museum was designed by Bhanu Shah and has a great collection of kites, illustrations, and photographs.
