Rani Sipri's Mosque - Review
Adorning the land of the hustling city of Ahmedabad is this gem of a place which was built in the early days of the 15th century. The mosque is situated on the south-eastern side of Ahmedabad and was built by Rani Sipri who was the queen and wife of Mehmud Begada. As with all the architecture of that time, Rani Sipri’s mosque is also donned with Indo-Islamic charm owning to the cultural unity and architectural prominence prevalent during the Mughal era. It is undoubtedly a beautiful amalgamation of Hindu and Islamic culture and rightfully called as ‘Masjid-e-Nagira’. On coming here, you will be able to witness its intricately designed Jali walls and beautiful imposing minarets. Click a picture or two and dwell on the old stories that resonate within the walls of the mosque.

Wonderful carving on stone. This is a small mosque. But the art is great. It is on main road near astodia darwaja. Worth the visit if you are interested in archaeological sites. Easily noticeable from the main road.
Another great structure with awesome architecture.. it is also have some temple design.. looks like a old shiva temple having a dome, temple bells on pillars, deep mala and other hindu symbols which can be easily seen in any temple..
This place reminds us about the great heritage of our world's 1st heritage city ahmedabad #proudtobeanamdavadi
