About Jhulta Minara

The Jhulta Minara in Ahmedabad is a structure in itself and is popular across the globe. It also known as the Sidi Bashar Mosque and the vibrant minarets is its striking feature.The Jhulta Minara mosque was built in 1452 AD during the reign of Emperor Muhammad Begada by a noble from his court. The mosque is entirely built in sandstone and is a classic example of splendid craftsmanship with intricate carvings. The mosque contains 2 minarets, which vibrate with even a gentle vibration. However, the passageway stays free from the swaying effect. The reason behind the vibrating effect of the minarets is however not yet known. In order to unveil the mystery behind the swaying of the minarets, Britishers made an attempt to destroy one of the minarets of the mosque. The structure is also known for its world-class workmanship and is very beautiful. It is believed that the royal family visited the place for family entertainment.
