Ambani family's palatial ancestral home

The Ambanis family presently resides in Antillia, a 27-floor architectural marvel in Mumbai

However, the richest family in Asia traces its roots to Chorwad, a coastal village in the Junagadh district of Gujarat, where their ancestral home is located

More than 100 years old, the Ambanis partially rented this magnificent property in the early 20th century before they purchased it in 2002

This is where Dhirubhai Ambani — the founder of the Reliance Industry, was born

Spread across 1.2 acres of land, the Ambani family's ancestral home was earlier known as Mangarolvalano Delo

The two-storey mansion was converted into a memorial in 2011 and has undergone many changes. But the Ambanis have managed to maintain its original architecture

They have also replicated the portion where Dhirubhai Ambani lived — with brass-copper utensils, wooden furniture and other items reflecting the family’s rich cultural heritage

Mukesh Ambani hired Amitabh Teaotia Designs and architectural firm Abhikram to complete the 100-plus-year-old ancestral property

The restored property - Dhirubhai Ambani Memorial House, has been divided into two parts - one of which is open to the public
