During my visit to Ahmedabad a few weeks ago my local friends recommended me to visit this place. It was constructed in the 15th century and I really admired its architecture. I wonder if sub-continent was the center of arts and all that stuff in these centuries. It is a beautiful complex and it has a mosque a good sized... More

were treated to a cultural programme of music and dance organized around bonfire. A scrumptious spread of cuisine at the dinner and breakfast made our at roja a lot more delectable. On the whole, it was worth every rupee. Those of you who love free-wheeling

Good place to be at ... Maintenance is a little issue but its worth visiting. Try to visit it when the prayers are not in progress. That way you can visit the prayer hall as well. Another beautiful architectural venture.

Nothing much. Not architecturally. Religious significance may be for muslims. Neglected and not maintained.

My guide tells me that the whole place and the architectural styles represents the 15th century tastes and life and from what I have seen at the place, India must have been a center to architectural connoisseurs that can very well challenge the engineers of today. The work around the place is one of the best works I have seen.... More

The Sarkhej Roja is a Sufi mosque, known as a dharga because it holds the tombs of royalty and a saint, Shaykh Ahmad Khattu, who came to Gujerat around 1400AD and was reputed to live 108 0r 111 years. The mosque is next to a huge tank, late 14th or early 15th century, mostly dry when we visited. On the... More

Sarkhej Roja is one of the finest Islamic monuments of Gujarat but is unfortunately seldom visited by tourists and its maintenance is also neglected by the local authorities. It is a beautiful historical complex worth visiting, some parts now unfortunately lie in ruins (except the mosque). This place also lacks tourist amenities. The location could be one factor why this... More

Sakhej Roza was bustling with people on the Sunday evening when we visited it. It seems to be most sought after place for people to gather and pray. We never felt unwelcomed. The people were very friendly and we could easily move around without any hesitations. It also has some exquisite collection of jaali works. The biggest pond was dry,... More

A beautiful complex a bit out of town which lets you imagine life in the 15th century through a combination of palaces, mosques, shrines and exhibitions. Not to be missed when in Ahmedabad.

It is a large pond with some remnants of a wall and palaces. The place, as is usual with most Indian historical places, is not very tourism friendly and is more for local couples and pass time friends. People come for playing cards and lazing around. One can only wonder, how beautiful the place would have been, one of those... More
