The best picture of my trip was taken at the entrance of this mosque. It is interesting to note that the people whol built this mosque were quite liberal and used a cocunut on pot (traditional auspicious symbol of Hindus) in carving there. I loved the big setting and the space around it. It was mesmerizing

Dating from the 16th century, its architecture unites a Muslim spatial character with Hindu motifs, since when it was built, Muslim faith was new to the region and all the masons and craftsmen were Hindu. The courtyard is beautiful, and a place of serenity amidst the noise and life of the old city. Both sexes are... More

Good to reminded of the Mogul past- in a city aspiring to be a mega city and sprawling multi national and international sky scrapers and lifestyle high rise living- the Jamia masjid offers relief from the hustle and bussel of Amdavad dust and grime

As with other properties managed by trusts, this one also needs a facelift. However the beautifully carved pillars and dome can leave you breathless and wanting for more. I wish ASI and Waqf start paying more attention to the stupendous architectural marvels of India
