Golden Glory, imparts a visual experience of the Old Walled city of Ahmedabad. According to Solanki this heritage tells the tale of a glorious past. This artwork shows the façade of the Pol housing on Gandhi Road of Ahmedabad, in very bold lines and a sketchy format. Further describing the housing format, he tells how the shops on the ground floor are run by families residing on floors stacked above that shop, and how all the balconies are facing towards that street to watch people pass by. The bird feeder (chabootra) is considered an iconic structure and symbolizes the culture of the closely knitted community of the Pol housing. People gather in the evening around it and chat. The gold colour of the chabootra is symbolic of the prosperity of this city. The colourful patches in the sky depict the kites, which are symbolic of how passionate people of Ahmedabad are for their festivals and celebrations and its vibrancy is highlighted using a wide spectrum of colours.
