A nice piece of architecture falling on bad times. This is situated in the middle of city. It is an active mosque .
The place looks as if it could have seen better times.

Great piece of architecture. A very peaceful place. Great to sit, relax and introspect. One of the two most famous mosques of Ahmadabad. It has amazing stone carvings and is approximately 600 years old.

But the place is poorly maintained.

Although being a small mosque, the art is phenomenal ! It is located on the main road near Ashtodia Darwaja.

Worth the visit if you are interested in archaeological sites.

It is also have some temple design - looks like an old Shiva Temple having a dome, temple bells on pillars, deep mala and other Hindu symbols which can be easily seen in any temple.

Easily noticeable from the main road, no need to even follow google maps to locate, quite visible to the naked eyes when nearby.

But it badly needs government action & funds for preservation & maintenance of this most important piece of Indian History.

Good place to visit before it goes under maintenance.

A well-known mosque, a fine example of the so-called Ahmedabad style of the Indian religious architecture, as it is determined by critics. The same washed out brown color, the same rich carvings inside. The balconies under the windows from each side of the other entrances look especially original. It was built by the most famous, in addition to the founder of Ahmedabad, Ahmed Shah I, the Sultan of Gujarat Mahmud Begada and called after his wife's name, Rupmati. Her tomb is located here – it is the sort of stone canopy with five domed tops, supported by columns. The mosque is called the Sultan's masjid. Another name is the Queen's Mosque in Mirzapur. Because it is located in the Mirzapur area of Ahmedabad adjacent to the historic center of the city. From Sidi Sayed mosque you should not go left, towards the Nehru bridge, but cross the street and take Mirzapur road. Up the street, behind the mosque, Rani Rupmati, you'll another mosque, but on the right side, and then a Jain temple Hatheesingh Mandir.

he mosque was built by Mahmud Begada probably in the latter years (1430-1440) of Ahmed Shah I's reign. It is named after Rani Rupamati whom Mahmud Begada married after death of Qutubuddin.[1] This mosque measures, 105 feet long, forty-six broad, and thirty-two high. A high central arch, three imposing domes, slim minarets, carved galleries and an exquisite mihrab are there. Its three domes are linked together by a flat roof. The side entrances in the mosque open out in balcony windows on either side and end in a lattice window. The domes are supported with rows of twelve pillars each where as the smaller domes at the front and the rear of the bigger domes as well as the four corners of the mosque are there. The central section is an elevated level that rises above the small flanks and provides for a pierced clerestory, which carries the dome above. Though broken short in the 1819 Rann of Kutch earthquake, the bases of their minarets, from the fine tracery in their niches, are still the mosque's chief beauty. This is one of the buildings where the attempt to combine the arched Islamic and the flat Hindu styles was hardly a success; the plainness of the central arch clashes with the extreme richness of the upper cornice and the side minarets. Close by the mosque is a monument, with a large central and two side domes, raised over the tombs of Rani Rupamati and the other queen. The inside of the dome is richly fretted.

This mosque is in the old city of Ahmedabad which has been built by Mahmud Begada for this wife Rani Rupmati. The mosque is beautiful with intricate carvings on the walls, pillars and minarets. This Indo-Islamic architecture is designated as a monument of national importance. Highly recommended to visit when in Ahmedabad.

Rani Rupavati's Mosque is a beautiful heritage monument in Old Ahmedabad. The mosque has excellent history and great carvings on its walls. Definitely a must visit.
