Monument
See what Le Corbusier compared with the Acropolis of Athens at Sarkhej Roja, a mosque and tomb complex fusing Muslim and Hindu architectural style. Built between 1445 and 1451, it initially served as a highly regarded center to the Sufi faith, and contains tombs and monuments to numerous historical figures, including sultans and sheikhs. Wander the grounds observing various religious and royal buildings, and note the blend of Islamic domes, pillars, and brackets with Hindu ornamentation, all characteristic of Indo-Saracenic architecture. Consider visiting earlier in the day to avoid the height of the sun. Arrange your visit to Sarkhej Roja and discover more family-friendly attractions in Ahmedabad using our Ahmedabad vacation route planner.
