Large courtyard, 256 columns, more than a dozen domes, incorporates the symbols of other religions, this is a splendid mosque that is very welcoming and is a relaxing complex away from the chaotic traffic outside its walls.

This rare Masque with the strong influence of hindu design and craftsmanship, is very much a place you don't want to miss while in Ahmedabad. It' s impressive, its majestic and it's atrium is massive.

Best to go by foot as the roads leading to the mosque are narrow. The entrance is free but best not to come during praying time. As you go inside you have to remove your shoes, so it is best to wear socks because the floor can be very warm.

The most beautiful place in Ahmedabad , so a must visit to all. This is right in the center of the market area and just has a small board saying Jama Masjid. You climb up the stairs and you enter into a huge place of such serenity with absolute blockage of all the noise just outside its main door. We... More

About 600 years old, Jama Masjid is a beautiful mosque built during the rule of Ahmed Shah. It is an example of great restoration work that is being done in Gujarat to protect the heritage of its society with a maintenance contract having been given to a French company who repaired it from the effects of past earthquakes. Built with... More

One of the oldest mosques of the country with extensive courtyard. The minarets of the mosque got damaged during the 1918 AD earth quake so one does not see that exist today.

A 15th Century building in the heart of the old city of Ahmedabad, this is a magnificent structure with the support of 256 pillars made of local sandstone. Built by local architects and masons, this is a unique amalgam of Islamic and Indian- both Hindu and Jain architecture. Another important feature is that the minarets got demolished during the earthquake... More

JAMA MASJID (1424):Built by the founder of Ahmedabad city by Ahmed Sah. 260 pillars of yellow sand stone carries 15 domes in staggered elevation. It has a huge court yard. The entire structure is in a very bad condition. I am not an expert, but the inside architectural design of the pillars, corbels reminded me of the temples of South... More

The most extraordinary thing about the Jama Masjid of Ahmedabad is that the architecture is not purely Islamic. It bears many Hindu and Jain influences. Like the arch in the doorway. Or the lotus shaped inner domes. A gigantic Arabic script runs all through the courtyard walls. There are intricate carvings of trees done in sandstone by the doorway. There... More
