Sidi Saiyyed Mosque - Review
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
Went there as it was one the best places to visit in Ahmedabad. It was just just a mosque to just see the window nothing much to see. People from any community can visit the place.
Lovely old stone mosque sited near a busy intersection. Delicate well cared for stone work ix a feature of this building. Access is free to all.
Sidi saiyad was a slave of King Ahmed Shah, he was brought from Africa and he had done many good carving for the king. So this is the only mosque named after a slave. It is famous for its windows which are carved very well. Many times Ahmedabad is symbolized with it. Wooden model of this window is kept in many museums of India and abroad. It's Sidi Saiyad Mosque
Such a peaceful and serene place. The architecture of the place is really pleasing to the eyes, such intricate beautiful carving on the jalis. A literal visual treat for the eyes.
A place in centre of the city! Sad part in past the place needs to be maintain, result it in today world's best iconic and ancient monument. Must visit place in ahmedabad, no parking space prefer to take auto or public transport. The art in a single stone is just mesmerising and wonderful. Many history is attach to it.
