About Sarkhej Roza, Ahmedabad
It is a mosque built in the Makraba village near Ahmedabad. It is the most revered mosque in Gujarat as it was the residence of the great prophet Ganj Baksh. It was he who advised Sultan Ahmed Shah to make Sabarmati as his capital and then he will flourish more. This mosque was also built according to his instructions only. It was later completed by Qutbuddin II in the mid 15th century. But the final glamour is credited to the next Mughal Emperor Muhammad Begada.
It is said that this mosque has both ‘Jism’, which means body and ‘rooh’, which means spirit in it. This gives you an essence and the presence of the great priest here till now. It was originally set up on a vast area which has now reduced due to the upcoming and already settled families. The mosque is surrounded by beautiful gardens on all sides and also fantastically structured tombs also. All this gives the complex a very classic and ancient feel.
The creation of the temple design is the expertise of two Persian brothers namely, Azam and Muazzam. This also has splendid lattice work that is patent in all Islamic monuments. This temple is majorly based on the oldest Mughal architectural styles. Here, it is a lovely combination of Islamic, Hindu and Jain designs. The pillars and porches are made in Islamic styles but the motifs carved on them are more of Hindu and Jain style ones. There is also a pavilion and a large tank in the courtyard that has since the construction been used by common men.

Sarkhej Roza, Ahmedabad Reviews
Sarkhej Roza is basically a tomb complex. It's one of the best places to visit for those who love history and heritage. I had visited this place just a few days after the UNESCO declared Ahmedabad a Heritage City, the first city in India to get the heritage tag.
Most peaceful place. Shuts all the noises outside n inside
Excellent architecture of King Ahmedshah of Ahmedabad City. Very cool and peaceful atmosphere. Shaikh Ahmed Khattu, R.A. Sufi Dargah here. Also King Mahemoodshah tomb here. Nice Stone carving and great art and historical place.
Very old and clean place, well maintained, lake is the view point of the place
One of the Peaceful Place in Ahmedabad. Great architecture and design. But recently they make rule that no one can click photos. Photography is Not Allowed. Ahmedabad is Heritage City and this is what we see at heritage place.
