A Monument comparatively cleaner in old city. Place good to see a blend of various architectures including Hindu, Jain , Persian , Islamic and Iranian forms. Made by King Ahmed Shah , the monument still stands tall with minor losses of its twin minarets in the earthquake. All in all a total revision of history Lessons and Ahmedabad style of... More

I was visiting Ahmedabad a couple of weeks ago with my family and came across this mosque to offer my prayers. As I drew closer to this building its interior and exterior details really took my breath away. It is a religious place and all people are playing their own parts in the preservation of the complex.

Take a guide or a guide book, but this is an amazing Masjid to see. I saw this on the end of the old city tour and I'm glad I took the time. Gorgeous architecture.

I have stayed in Ahmedabad for the past few years,but I finally visited this mosque only couple of months back.Although it is a religious place,the serious grandeur of the building will impress everyone.The carvings,the columns,the long passageways,and the devotees who pray and wander around this beautiful mosque,make the place unique.It is situated in the most congested part of the city,but...

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
