about jama masjid

Revered as the oldest and most beautiful of all mosques of country, Jama Masjid has got a charm that remains unparalleled. It was built in 1424 when Ahmed Shah had the reins of Ahmedabad in his hands. It is built in yellow sandstone and houses the graves of Ahmed Shah, his queens, son and grandson. It leaves you in a trance with the mesmerising interplay of light and shadows that goes on in its archways. 

Though a substantial part of it crumbled in the earthquakes of 1819 and 1957, Jama Masjid is one of the favourite tourist attractions in the whole of Ahmedabad. Leaving the north gate of the Jama Masjid, you walk through a busy stretch towards Teen Darwaza, a ceremonial gateway built by Ahmed Shah.

Tha jama masjid is a unique piece of architecture. It is situated in crowded area though you will enjoy the trip of jama masjid. It is very near to the railway station. The area and passage ways are vast. Also the jali work and pillars are excellent. ...... read more

The jama masijid is situated in the the heart of the old city.Easily accessible by public transport.Avoid going in your own vehical as it can get very crowded and cars are not allowed in the small alleys.
