Apparently the second largest mosque in India, after Delhi's Jama Masjd, this is simply magnificent with carved stone pillars, a huge open front yard in front which also has a simple pond for ablutions before prayers.

The style of architecture is a mix of Moghul/Indo Aryan. How it came to be so could be due to 2 schools of thought. It would either be that the pillars are spoils of war that came from Hindu Temples, or the fact that the Moguls built their Masjid according to the style of the Hindu Sun Temples that were... More

I visited this mosque back in 2002 and it was a lovely weather in mid January.

If you visit India and you want to get immersed... 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.
