about sarkhej roja

Hailed as the Acropolis of Ahmedabad, Sarkhej houses the very famous Sarkhej Roja Mosque. Once spread across 72 acres, encroachment has shrunk its stretches to just 32 acres now. Nevertheless, this architectural wonder created by the two Persian brothers, Azam and Mu'azzam, is still a marvel to look at.

Sarkhej Roja, dedicated to Saint Ganj Baksh, is often said to be a timeless entity for the layout of the complex is uniquely mesmerising. Plus, you can see a perfect fusion of Hindu and Islamic architectural styles here. The importance of this structure, both for its design as well as the religious fervour for Saint Ganj Baksh’s tomb, will leave you entranced.
