The Jama Masjid stand with all its grandeur and vastness in acrowded area of Ahmedabad. But once you enter the masjid, peace prevails. The architecture is also significant in that you see a blend of Hindu and Muslim architecture.

Over 200 pillars and a huge courtyard. Amazing work on pillars, walls, domes, etc. A must go for all heritage lovers. I strongly believe this was the inspiration for Mughals' building including Delhi Jama Masjid. This Jama Masjid was built in 1400s whereas Delhi is in the 1700/1800s.

Nice place, very clean and well maintained. Architecture is just amazing, and very very different from the regular Islamic structures that you see in the country.

Very spacious with excellent carvings, more than 200 pillars with artistic sculpture, a separate provision for worship by women. Located in the heart of old Ahmedabad city with a deceptive entrance not indicating the vastness of Magnificent Mosque.

One has to actually see the overall plan, this mosque, along with the 3-darwaza, lal darwaza and adjoining places, gives you a glimpse of the old moghul ahmedabad

Beautiful building, however, the friday afternoon decibel terror drove us out after only 10 minutes. If you do not intend to visit the prayer, it is a better option to choose a different time visiting this mosque. Great food stalls just outside the entrance gate by the way (grilled mutton and non spicy aloo)

Jami Mosque is located in the middle of the old town. It is the biggest old mosque in Ahmedabad and it is very easy to find. It is also well preserved and nicely decorated. Actually it reminded me a little of Cordoba (although of course much smaller and much more modest). The positive thing is that everybody can enter and... More

This is a justly famous Mosque from 1423 - a must see in the City. We went twice & it was particularly lovely early in the morning, before the Old City got too busy.
