Its a rsting place of Shaikh ahmed Khattu known as Ganjbaksh. He was being regarded very highly by the Sultan MuhammadShah ll, who built the mosque & the tomb. Next to the Mosque is a big Pond which also acted as a water reservoir. A good place to visit though a bit on the outskirts of the city.

Sarkhej Roja is a worth visiting place and is open for all religions. I had visited this place last week but the timing was wrong. I will suggest the visitors to visit the place in the morning time. Because you are not allowed to enter the place with footwears. So it is very difficult to put your naked legs on... More

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

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
