Beautiful mosque situated near Lal Darwaza, old city ahmedabad. Its a very crowded area during the day time, therefore its better to visit early morning/ Worth visiting for those who are interested in heritage sites and historical places

Another attractive mosque of Sultan Ahmed Shah period constructed in the year 1414 A.D is situated in the Bhadra Fort area. It is very close to the Bhadra Court complex. Though the mosque is small compared to Jama Masjid of Ahmedabad but has characteristic features of its own to differentiate.

The mosque was erected by the founder of Ahmedabad, Ahmed Shah I in 1414. It said to have been used as the royal household's private mosque. According to the inscription at the upper part of the central mihrab, the foundation date seems to be the 4th day of Shawwal month in 817AH, which is 17 December 1414

Provably the oldest mosque in the city founded by the founder of ahmedabad at the same time than the bhadra fort and the city gates. Nice example of the muslim architecture of the time. Is always advisable to have a scarf to cover you head, but not necesary. Women are not allowed to be there at praying times
