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...

The place is undergoing renovation & its lost glory is being brought back. there is a mosque, a dargah, tombs, photo gallery & a lake within the premises. if the weather... More

I was spending some time in Ahmedabad and decided to do some sightseeing in my free time. The roza was an amazing find and I feel a trip to Ahmedabad is not complete without seeing this place. It is a complex of mosques and tombs around an artificial lake. The place is a photographers paradise - although tripods are not... More

Don't forget to visit during the rainy season. Also great place for photo shoot. Do carry camera stand with you. It is said that one is not allowed to carry Camera Stands. I don't know the logic. Do not wear Shorts during your visit

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
