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.

Nice for an evening outing with family. A visit during monsoon is better as the adjacent lake would be full.

The place is like any other you can visit. No too rush not too spacious. This area is near NH-8A. Our hotel was just 2 mins from this place so we visited the place whenever we went for a walk. If you are running short of time, you can give it a pass.

its a virtual time travel of sorts.. dont go in the dargah.. go from the back side, the place is magnificently beautiful.. i assume this is a sort of a reservoir that gets covered with water during monsoons, so if you are going in a season that is not with rains, you are in for a treat.. its really photographically...
