“Beautiful old architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

This is definitely a place you must visit, if you come to Ahmedabad. Its a sprawling structure with a mosque, the tomb of the very holy saint who was responsible for the founding of Ahmedabad. Tombs of kings and queens. A mini museum with old qurans beautifully illuminated etc. The large tank in front, is completel dry during the summers and I'm waiting fr a little more rains to see the tank filled.
The rescue and restoration of Sarkhej Roja is a marvel in itself

“Visit During Times Fest”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

I had been to Sarkhej roza many times, but the one time I remember well is the one when Times group had organised a sufi night in Sarkjej Roza. The whole monument was beautifully lighted and with great music. If you get opportunity do visit during the times of India festival.

“Sarkhej Roja”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

A great place in crowded Ahmedabad to break away from the hassles and feel the calmness in this spiritual place.

Cool under the natural drafts of wind in the stone structure built masssively.
