  • 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 .
  • Carving on Stone is awesome and extra ordinary. Very much Historic Place of Ahmedabad. Simply Great Place. Proud to have it in Ahmedabad.
  • Greatest Heritage value. Excellent carving work. Perfect landmark of Ahmedabad city'.
  • 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.
