The best time to visit is the morning, before the markets open up and the crowds start streaming in. An imposing monument, having very fine workmanship. Sitting in the large courtyard and marveling at the majestic masjid, you can feel the tension draining out of you. Certainly a must when visiting Ahmedabad.

Entering from the very crowded Manek Chowk area in old Ahmedabad and seeing this vast open space inside the Jama Masjid comes quite as a surprise. The prayer hall is very impressive too with its sea of columns. Since this is an active religious site one doesn't fell like wandering around too much as a sightseeing tourist. If one wants... More

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
