Sarkhej Roja, Ahmedabad

(4.1/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Roza of hazrat shaikh ahmed khattu R.A Beautiful and peaceful place.
  • A peaceful and meditative place. The people were really supportive and explained a bit about the history of the place. Entry fee is Rs 5 per person. Outside it was not that clean. I could not understand why ladies were not permitted from entering the mosques. There is a lake nearby which again is not maintained at all. This is a heritage place, and a little bit more cleanliness could add a lot of value to this place.
  • Awesome place to see. Must visit in Ahmedabad.
  • Sarkhej Roza is a mosque and tomb located in Sarkhej Area in Ahmedabad City. It is an awesome to place to visit. There are many rozas in Ahmedabad and Sarkhej Roza is very popular in Ahmedabad city.
  • Visit this mosque in the early hours of this morning before it gets warm. The light is perfect and there are very few people around.
