Sarkhej Roja, Ahmedabad

3.8
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.

  • The site is now quiet famous for photoshoots . It has beautiful ancient carvings. Its an old mosque which is not very well preserved by the government here. Good place for the photographers .  more »
  • This place is riven deep in history and offers great vantage points. It’s such a shame that the Government of India can not find the funds to renovate and upgrade this beautiful place.  more »
  • It is one of the very beautiful places to visit in Ahmedabad. It is a heritage pace and it has its own beauty. It looks amazing especially during the sunrise or at sunset time. Worth a visit.  more »
