Beautiful building, however, the friday afternoon decibel terror drove us out after only 10 minutes. If you do not intend to visit the prayer, it is a better option to choose a different time visiting this mosque. Great food stalls just outside the entrance gate by the way (grilled mutton and non spicy aloo)

Jami Mosque is located in the middle of the old town. It is the biggest old mosque in Ahmedabad and it is very easy to find. It is also well preserved and nicely decorated. Actually it reminded me a little of Cordoba (although of course much smaller and much more modest). The positive thing is that everybody can enter and... More

This is a justly famous Mosque from 1423 - a must see in the City. We went twice & it was particularly lovely early in the morning, before the Old City got too busy.

The mosque and its compound are fairly big and in general nice to see. But unique is the very special mixture of arab and hindu architecture which can be observed here. In Ahmedabad a must see.

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
