A unique feature of Ahmedabad is Heritage Walk with core value of the plan of old city, comprising numerous pols, self-contained neighborhoods, sheltering large number of people. Some of these pols are virtually small villages, traversed by narrow streets, usually terminating in squares with community wells and chabutras for feeding birds. These pols were protected by gates, cul-de-sacs and secret passages.
