About Sidi Saiyyed Mosque, Ahmedabad
This is one of the finest mosques in Gujarat and in the whole country as well. This mosque is famous especially for its mesh designs intricately done on the 10 large windows. This mosque was established by a slave of Sultan Ahmed Shah, named SidiSaiyad and thus, it was named after him.
This mosque is located near the famous LalDarwaza in Ahmedabad and was constructed long time ago in the year 1573. The monument is famous worldwide for its splendid architecture and interior designing. The front wall is carved with pretty miniature geometric patterns and also has many floral motifs on the wall. Since, it was a monument of the Mughal period, so obviously has the traditional essence of the designs. The two parts jutting out from the center have stone slabs with beautiful carvings of crawling trees and also an exclusive palm tree. This lattice work is the unofficial symbol of the culture of Ahmedabad and also the inspiration behind the Institute of Management in Ahmedabad.
The central window of the arch is not as beautiful as the other parts and seems to be completed in a hurry. It shows the decline of the Mughal Empire at this time and the invasion of other clans into this region.

Sidi Saiyyed Mosque, Ahmedabad Reviews
Magnificent. Built in 1500s, still looks like it was built recently. The structure has been well maintained for centuries now. However there is no parking so you'll have to park your vehicle on the nearby street. There's not much inside except the monument itself and the tomb of the king who built it.
A great historical landmark of the city. Peace, serenity and focus are the things people come here for. Also, listed under World Heritage site. Crowdy at Islamic festivals.
Has beautiful carvings. At the center of the city. Tree of Life is the world famous carving here. Wooden replica of which exists in London and New York. Peaceful pleasant place.
Fantastic place to visit. Small mosque. Excellent lighting. Excellent outlook. Must visit. Located at heart of the city. Preferably visit at evening.
Known that it was 1500 aged building.. It was located opposite to heritage hotel.. Lot of doves flying here and there is beautiful.. Enjoying the holiness
