This is a large old mosque complex in the middle of the old city. It has many domes and columns to hold them up. Not as elegant as the mosques in Instanbul, but lovely carvings. Entire courtyard is also of interest. Free. You need to remove your shoes. Best to wear socks.

On busy Gandhi road, good old architectural masjid, with wide rectangular open space. Visit before 9 AM otherwise, would be blocked in traffic.

This mosque is similar to the Delhi Juma masjid. The courtyard of the mosque is huge and the water tank is in the middle of the courtyard. This is in old part of the city. It is at a walkable distance from the Sidi saiyed mosque, but the road is narrow due to un organized parking.

I wonder whether the hands behind this construction is really human. A real mixture of Art and Religion. The mighty beams and columns supporting this structure is full of carvings and is incredible. Women please note the dress code as this is a mosque and not to hurt others feelings.

There are so many opportunities for visiting architectural monuments of various religious traditions, all of which are practiced today in Ahmedabad. This is the great Friday mosque, or congregational mosque, with its huge courtyard, covered prayer hall, qibla wall and mihrab, and several other buildings within the complex. Be sure to walk around and explore both inside and outside; even... More

The Jama Masjid (or Jumma Masjid) in Ahmedabad is well worth a visit - IF you love mosques. I do. But if you don't love mosques or find them interesting, you can skip it. This one is very large and feels very similar to the Jama Masjid in Old Delhi (that one's bigger but this one is free from fuss... More
