It is the most splendid mosque of Ahmedabad that i have visited, built in 1424 during the reign of Ahmed Shah I, Jama Masjid of Ahmedabad was probably the largest mosque in the Indian subcontinent built in this period. Lying in the old walled city. A must visit during your stay in ahmedabad

Try get in when the crowds are thin...and that's a hard ask! The architecture and the ambience of the old city surrounding it, including the myriad lanes and businesses provide a step into a different cultural past

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
