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.

  • On the road... Construction is great... Not a vast area but not so small either... The pillars, roof dome and air vent construction is fantastic... The tree shaped design is being followed throughout in every other monument... No parking lot available...

  • Amazing place. Neat and clean. If you love to visit historical place then this the best one you have choose.

  • It is the oldest jali in Ahmedabad. The place is a heritage site. The people who want to see the amazing art work come and explore the place. They take pictures, write stories, make a video on it. The place is Very old but still famous. This kind of work is done by old karigars around 450 years ago.
