The popular art gallery got its name from its unique architecture which was designed to provide a cave-like experience. Greatly resembling a cave which means Gufa in Hindi, this art gallery is the proud host of an exclusive collection of one of the most celebrated artists of the era- M.F. Hussain. While Hussain stands as the central figure in the gallery, B.V. Doshi - a prominent architect and engineer holds the flag for bringing this place to life. This is perhaps the reason why it is also called as Hussain Doshi Gufa.

Art lovers and painters will get a lot of inspiring stuff to see and feast on here. The gallery is sprawled in the surrounding of Center for Environment Planning and Technology which is easily accessible by the city. Come here to check out its various attractions including the numerous short films showed through projectors and various paintings.

It's really a very peaceful area in ahmedabad... Love it...

  • Nice and peaceful place. Hard to find the place from road. Cave is beautifully creates. Art gallery is very nice. Cafe is really nice. Cafe price is high but the quality and hygiene they maintaine very nicely.

  • Good place but you cannot find it from the road only for those person who knows that there is such place exist in that area although the art gallery was great..... To Authorities, Please create a sign board or any indication board so that more art/architecture lover can find it even if they don't aware of that place. A Humble Man

  • A very nice and quiet place to hang out with friends. You can have hot and cold beverages and snacks while you are there. The place closes at 8 pm.

  • The gallery space is below ground level. A partially hidden staircase leads to a circular door which opens into a cave-like space. Though designed to display paintings, the cave has no straight walls, instead using a continuation of the curved dome structure which extends down to the floor. The domes themselves are supported by irregularly shaped inclined columns, similar to those found in natural caves. They are also said to resemble the trunks of trees] The entire design is made up of circles and ellipses.Light arrives though snouts, creating spots of light on the floor which move around as the day progresses, intended to create a mystic atmosphere.
