Worth seeing for the tree of life carving in itself. Situated in the middle of a busy roundabout but that adds to the authentic Indian experience. Open for visits when not being used for prayer.

Famous for its Jali (window carvings) work, which is also adopted by IIM Ahmedabad on its emblem, this mosque is a very small structure in the middle of the city. Cleric was not very keen to allow us take the pictures. And being absolute discreet, there was not much to shoot other than the 3 windows.

Be respectful of the rules listed where you remove footwear.The jali can be seen from behind too by walking around the masjid ,through the surrounding garden. The mosque was built in the last year of the Sultanate of Gujarat’s reign . The palm motif in the window is the inspiration for the design of the logo of the Indian Institute... More

Came to know from the local elders about the history of this place but felt sorry along their disappointment that this place lacks proper lighting to put a fair impression throughout the night. An Abyssnian nobleman built it during the vanishing years of the Delhi/Gujarat Sultanate, the Britishers used it as their office once. Everything is evident there, except the... More
