Visited as part of a larger tour group here on a heritage walk of Ahmedabad. The architecture of the mosque and courtyard are beautiful. This is not so much a tourist attraction, and you will be sharing it with worshipers not tourists, so remember to be respectful. The neighborhood around the mosque is quiet lively, and there are almost always... More

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.

Liked: Very nice architecture, just like the other Mugul historical sites. Disliked: Tourist guides are too pushy, beggars inside the Masjid.

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. I strongly recommend to visit it during winter months and especially early morning or late evening as you have to walk barefooted all across the big inner courtyard and your feet soles will suffer. If you visit India and you want to get immersed... More

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.
