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...

I think we went there at the wrong time, there was no security at the gate. So we stepped inside. A man came rushing and shooed us out quite rudely. Quite a bad experience at the place.

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
