You will be picked up from your hotel in the afternoon and driven to the 15th century mosque and tomb complex of Sarkhej Roza situated on the outskirts of Ahmedabad.
The mosque and surrounding mausoleums are an elegant example of the Indo-Saracenic style of architecture, which is a blend of Hindu, Jain and Islamic styles. Sarkhej was a small village of weavers that became known as the centre of Sufism after the Sufi saint Shaikh Ganj Baksh Khattu settled here. Upon his death in 1445, Mohammad Shah, the reigning Sultan, built a mausoleum and a mosque in his honor. Later a lake was also built near the mosque and the Sultan added another mausoleum for himself and his family. The mosque at Sarkhej Roza is notable for the complete absence of minarets as well as the beautiful lattice work that covers its walls.
Next drive down to the banks of the River Sabarmati. Walk on the two-level promenade that lines the banks of the river. It is a popular site with the locals to spend an evening.
Afterwards, drive over to Vishalla, a lush green village style complex that houses an ethnic restaurant and the Utensils Museum, the only museum of its kind in the world. The museum has a large collection of utensils dating back a thousand years right up to the present times. The collection reflects the evolutionary trend of utensils over the various periods of history in response to the changing needs and environment. The metal utensils on display range from brass, copper, bronze, zinc and even German silver. The origins of utensils can be seen in articles made from leaves to a jug made from gourd.
After the visit to the museum, you will be driven back to your hotel.
