    One of the main attraction of the city is Sidi Saiyed's Mosque. It is the oldest architecture of the city and worth a visit.  more »

    A lesson for modern India and the world! This was commissioned by the Ethiopian governor and general of Ahmadabad who had worked his way out of slavery, crossed half the world, integrated into a new culture and was accepted! It is a story of migration, plurality, openness and civil society. As a proud Canadian I think everyone should learn this lesson .

    The simplicity of this place is quite attractive. This mosque is historic in its own sense, the jali at the back of the mosque is the logo of prestigious MBA institute IIM A making this place more special and its rustic aura just appeases the eye of the traveller, situated very well in Ahmedabad it's a must visit.

    It's located in the center of the Ahmadabad city, one of the best structure of ancient Indian architecture, such a beautiful curving of stone. Pretty huge structure right next to the railway station.
