Jami masjid is famous and is located in main market of Ahmedabad. The place is used for prayer hence one need to remove footwear while entering inside. Until that time one cannot see what lies inside but once you enter inside you can witness the marvellous structure.

The pillar at entrance are huge and has some detsoked carvings on it. The courtyard is huge from where you can do photography.

Take auto to reach here as there is no parking space for cars. As the location is in market hence the area is congested.

Jami Masjid is located in old Ahmedabad & is a must - visit, specially if you're on a heritage tour of the old city. A short flight of stairs leads to the Masjid gate where you remove your footwear. The entry is free.

Once inside, we were surprised with the open courtyard which seemed improbable from the road. An ablution pond exists in the center & the periphery is lined with a shaded colonnade for prayers.

The main structure has exquisite pillars with carvings worth seeing. We didn't enter the main building but had a round of photography in front of it.

This is very close to the main attractions of Old Ahmedabad including the Teen Darwaja, Manek Chowk. There was no entrance charge, but you must leave your shoes at the door. Once inside you have a sense of open space in stark contrast to the lively streets outside. There is a central pool and an adjacent prayer hall with myriad pillars which create beautiful shadow patterns as the sun moves across the sky above the open courtyard beyond. be aware that photos within this prayer space are forbidden.

The masjid is well known with prayers being carried out everyday. There is history attached with it being associated with Mughal history...

Jami Masjid is a major mosque in Ahmedabad built in the early 15th century in the reign of Ahmed Shah of the Muzaffarid dynasty. The mosque has a standard rectangular plan, but unusually does not have the standard minarets., which were destroyed 1819 earthquake and never rebuilt. The most interesting features of the mosque are the ring of colonnades around the open courtyard and the level of details on the columns which are decorated with calligraphy instead of the more usual floral and geometric patterns. The number of columns also extends to the main prayer area which is just saturated with columns, but they do make a pretty sight.

One of the more interesting things to see in Ahmedabad.

We participated in one of the walking Heritage tours in the early morning, and the mosque is the climax of the tour. There are certainly bigger and more impressive mosques in India, but this is the biggest and best in this area. We were hot and hungry by the time we reached this mosque, and it was still worth the time to look around and to talk with the people inside the courtyard. Gratefully, we came on a day without many people so the experience was probably less hassled than some have experienced. It was not easy to get an Uber out of this area, so we opted for an auto-rickshaw instead.

Appearances are deceptive. This is a peaceful haven along a busy road. It is the oldest mosque in Ahmedabad. Amazing arhitecture.

A historical place with a wonderful architectural of it's own but very difficult to spot even when you walk on front of it. It's a treat for architecture lovers with it's intricate walls, domes and pillars

Though the entrance is shabby, the moment you step inside, it takes you to a different level altogether. This is a place where people come for worship on a daily basis but should say that the place is well kept and maintained. Overall it's a must visit place in Ahmedabad
