The Calico Museum of Textiles, under the aegis of the Sarabhai Foundation, is India's premier textile museum. Its collection of Indian textiles is considered by many to be the finest and most comprehensive in the world. The textiles, alongwith the Sarabhai Foundation's outstanding collection of South Indian bronzes, Vaishnava picchavais, Jain art, and miniature paintings, are housed in The Retreat which is located in the Shahibaug area of Ahmedabad. The Foundation conducts a daily museum tour of the collections and offers an extensive range of textile and other publications.
