  • Superb carving and peaceful place. The back side is closed . So you need to take photo by zooming in otherwise you have to take photo from inside(which is I think inappropriate as prayer is going there). Government wants to demolish some part of the entrance for widening the road. But I wish they preserve the heritage site.
  • eautiful place build in the middle of city. Not huge as a Mosque. One the most must visit place to visit in ahmedabad.
  • My proud, identity of my metro city Ahmedabad. Ancient monument and heritage. More than 600 year old. Stone is speaking this mosque. Marvellous carving in Red Stone.
  • Beautiful place build in the middle of city. Not huge as a Mosque. One the most must visit place to visit in ahmedabad. Not sure if photography is allowed here but you still click photos from outside.
  • The most peaceful and calm place in entire Ahmedabad ! This place is beautiful, and the history of this place truly intrigues you. The carvings are so intricate, that the carvings have become the Symbol of Ahmedabad. Best place for history-lovers.
