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.

The incredible carving! This is the only master piece in the world! The sidi Saeed mosque is so historical the locals call it 'The tree of life! This is so delicate and intricate! When Eve I come here I definitely visit it especially at night! The carvings looks so gorgeous from back side at night! It's reflects my Town Ahmedabad's glorious past! How it was a beautiful before 500 years!
It's a very beautiful place, which has the famous sidi saeed ki jali. It's a heritage place. I really felt nice visiting this place. It's recommended to go early morning when there's no traffic and not much crowd around, park your vehicle at a proper parking place and than go to click pictures. Enjoy 😊😊😊😊
I don't know why this very dirty place is famous . If it's famous then it should be clean
