Sarkhej Roza is a vast complex consisting of a Mosque ; tombs of the rulers and their ladies , a palace and a pond. All these would have been in splendour during the hey days of the Muslim rulers of Ahmedabad. This monument is a ‘must see’ for every tourist. It was a week-day when my wife and I visited... More

Great infrastructure... Clean pond...Nice greenery and husband's company. You can't get proper food here. So you should carry something with you to eat..

The place needs a makeover, but due to the negligence of the government authorities the place looks more like a haunted place. If maintained properly, it could turn into a major tourist attraction. Even though without the makeover this place is a piece of magnificent architecture and wall cravings. The museum has some really good photos to compare the place... More

Christened by renowned architect Le Corbusier as ‘Ahmedabad’s Acropolis’, Sarkhej Roza is a palace, mosque and tomb complex located in the village of Makaraba, 7 km south-west of Ahmedabad in Gujarat ,India. Architecturally, it is an example of the early Islamic architectural culture of the region, which fused Islamic stylistic influences from Persia with indigenous Hindu and Jain features to... More

excellent few hours spent at Sarkhej Roja especially see the games of cricket in the maidan below. Well preserved but in need of some government investment.

Lovely place with beautiful old architecture. The place looks even more beautiful during evening, quite a delight for photographers. The steps around what must be a pond are very majestic. The dried pond is now used for playing cricket by the locals. The masjid is grand and serene. A must visit for people who enjoy beautiful architecture..

Gujarat Tourism is promoting this spot.. Rich connection to the History of Ahmedabad. Huge complex... Being renovated. The Sufi Sangeet show during monsoon on its Lake is superb idea but parking and approach needs to be better planned for such events

Again I heard a lot about in online reviews so despite the rickshaw drivers feedback I still went to sarkhej Roja . There was some meeting going on so it was quite crowded. The men were in the meeting in the inside courtyard while the women and the children played in the main courtyard. Some areas were prohibited for women... More

Apart from the Sabarmati Ashram, this is one of those rare places where you can have some time to be with yourself. The place is mosque and is spread-ed out in a vast area giving a scenic view. This place recalls the times of ancestral architecture.
