It is indeed a sad state of affairs in India, that architectural masterpieces of historical importance like Sarkhej Roja is in this state of neglect. There are numerous such places dotting this culturally and historically rich country. In most other countries, such places would be shining like diamonds and be major tourist attractions. Not in India. This is an active... More

The complex of Sarkhej Roja is a vast complex of mosque with tomb, water tank and other structures creating a huge rock complex with the historical tint to it. The mosque is huge and vast which can leave you awestruck. The water tank is more like a man made lake with its banks distinctly marked by high stone pavilions with... More

16th century structure very poorly maintained and encroached from all sides. Ladies are not allowed inside the shrine! The building is not very impressive other than its jaali-work on windows. In absence of any maintenance it is a place where hardly anybody goes. Not worth a visit especially if you are with children or elderly people. Women are anyhow not... More

This is one of the best places, a complex of several buildings consisting of a mosque, tomb, water tank and several other structures. The main complex is built next to a water-body, on the other side of which are two excellent pavilions/ summer palaces. Visit the place just before the sunset and try to capture the sunset behind those pavilions,... More

Must visit with camera. Try to blend the attire with local taste. Do not try to eat around. Before looking around ,read up the available write-ups displayed to understand the flavour of the place.its wide spread, but do make it a point to ask the local care taker to open the back gate to catch the view of the tank...

This is a very beautiful place. One can visit it any time of the day but best to visit this place is in the evening. But It is not maintained properly.
