About Sidi Saiyyed Mosque

The Sidi Saiyyed Mosque, Ahmedabad was built in 1572 AD and is one of the most brilliantly designed monuments in India. The mosque is still being used by Muslims for prayer and ‘Namaaz’.This beautiful mosque was built by Sidi Sayed who was a slave of the Emperor Ahmed Shah. The entire mosque is built in typical Muslim indo-sarsenic style presenting a fabulous collection of artistic windows. All the windows are embellished in stone slab, intricately carved with entangled tree foliage and patterns. There are 10 semi-circular meshed windows in the mosque, more popularly known as ‘Jali’. Imitations of this ‘Jali’ have been preserved in many museums of Ajmer, Ahmedabad, Delhi and Hyderabad. There is also a small ‘wazu’ pond (ablution) in the center of the monument. The splendor of this historical monument has made Sidi Saiyyed Mosque recognized globally and is one of its kinds. It is a must-visit tourist destination.
