It is one of the landmark of Ahmedabad. Located nearer to the railway station in a densely populated location, the religious structure inspires a awe in you. The vast clear area inside the Masjid complex is punctuated with a central water bodies where namazis offer their prayers. The Jali work is terrific and the magnificent structure with all those columns... More

A huge mosque, with ritual cleansing pool in courtyard. Lovely carvings in the galleries skirting the courtyard, where the celebrants preach and lead the prayers from special niches in the walls. It was so hot the soles of my feet were burning on the stone paving - it pays to toughen up the feet before visiting Indian places of worship!

The Jama masjid is one of the hidden jewels of Ahmedabad. Its probably very less known but its really one of the most beautiful mosques of India. You cannot probably make out the grandeur from outside as all that you can see from main road is a Wakf Committee Board. But the great stuff lies behind those doors. Its walkable... More

You have to be respectful here, covered legs,(I wore a lunghi), and once you're through the entrance the size of the courtyard will impress. You would not believe how close you are to the main market, it is so quiet inside but that is what India is like. There are covered walkways around the courtyard, a covered pool in the... More

Historic look, a glimpse of Ahmedabad culture was papably visible on the street around. The abundance of Moghal food around. Praying friday prayer in this mosque was a spiritually fulfilling experience. However, the area could have been a little more cleaner and aesthetic!

The jama masjid is situated in the heart of the old city. Easily accessible by public transport. Avoid going in your own vehicle as it can get very crowded and cars are not allowed in the small alleys. Best time to visit is early morning or afternoon, as the mosque is built of stone and it can get very hot... More

From outside, we wouldn't find much details. If you go with a guide, this masjid is having so many minute details and very clean. Well maintained. They are allowing even ladies to enter there and have a look. That way this masjid is unique. This place is surrounded by full of shopping centers.

This is right in the middle of the busiest part of town yet inside is serene and peaceful. the architecture is of the time of the Mugal kings and truly breath taking. the hypostyle hall is the main attraction, but please remember this is an active place of worship and respect is paramount
