  • There is a small entrance in the street lined with small shops. When I go inside, there is a big square suddenly and I am surprised. There are 260 stone pillars lined up in the building, and it is spectacular.

  • No matter how much crowd and noise is there outside. Once you step inside mosque its pin drop silence. Soulful place. Its huge, clean and perfect place to find yourself in peace. What an architect and his skills. So many pillars but each has different carving. People who work there are so friendly. No doubt why India is called country with great history and also no doubt why Ahmedabad has given "Heritage city" title. I would love to go there as many times as I can. You should visit it once in your lifetime.
  • Beautiful place to visit, we were lucky to get the tour from the owner of the place, who allowed the females inside the main mosque area. The scale is grand, you enter from what is a narrow dense street, and the sky opens up to the large courtyard. We ended up spending more time here than we had planned, but it was amazing.
  • It's a very old mosque. If you are interested in monuments with historical importance, then do not miss to visit this masterpiece. It has an open courtyard and can accommodate hundreds of devotees at a single time. A lot of hotels and restaurants in the vicinity offer meals at economical rate
  • It is very old mosque in the city. It's design is awesome. When you visit there I strongly advise you carry a bag to put your shoes in, else your shoes or slippers will be stolen. And you would definitely like it art in mosque
  • A very good spiritual place, you will feel the peace here. Historical place. A well crafted and designed pillars, in the middle small water pond...Must visit place for tourist
