If you are in Ahmedabad and have time I would recommend visiting Sarkhej Roza. The site comprises of several tombs, a mosque and a huge dry tank. Why visit, well it is not busy, the architecture is absolutely beautiful and it is a place that not many people will have visited. The architecture predates the Mughal period in a true... More

Sarkhej Roja is an architectural marvel and a wonder. anyone visiting ahmedabad must see this ancient relic that has stood the test of time. afcourse the site of the empty water reservoir will make your heart heavy but the two palaces and the huge mosque make this magnificent place spectacular and the splendour of its design will leave you awestruck.

A very nice place with some tombs in one building. A tomb for a man who was the teacher of the first shah. There is also a functioning mosque. There are also two palaces near the lake, but they are in poor condition.

This place is a little away from the center of Ahmedabad but worth the visit. We did this on our way from Adalaj. From the highway you will get a lot of buses going to Sarkhej. The monument itself is a little inside from the highway , so took an auto from the highway junction. An islamic complex, with mosques... More

Well, that is how Le Corbusier had described it. This is a very impressive site with important mosques and tombs. Like everywhere else, the architecture combines Muslim, Hindu and Jain styles. While the exterior, domes and pillars are built in the Muslim style, the ornamentation and motifs follow Hindu and Jain styles. A short drive from Ahmedabad, don't miss this... More

It is a beautiful place and worth driving across half the city. It a sort of a complex with a lovely mosque and tombs surrounded by gardens. On one side was a huge man made Sarkhez Lake…though at present it is completely dry and is used by children as a playground…An appropriate sufi centre once upon a time and you... More

This is a wonderful complex that contains extremely fine architecture. A whole Islamic complex of a great period of architecture that is well worth the visit.

Most of the people you meet here are muslims practicing their faith or relaxing/picnicking in the open court areas. The tomb (first building on the left as you enter the site) is the most beautiful part of the complex. Unfortunately the water reservoir is empty so you lose the perspective of the "peaceful lake" on site. It is well worth... More

This mosque offers a lot of attractions around with gigantic halls and open spaces. Not known to many living in Ahmadabad is a well maintained place. A good place to visit in all seasons.

It's to be seen to be believed that an erstwhile water body of such dimensions has been allowed to dry up over the years! And that too, in a water-deficient state like Gujarat! Nevertheless, the place has so many things to offer - a small museum, tombs, a mosque and above all, a meeting place for people from all sections... More
