Built in 1424 by Sultan Ahmed Shah (who founded the city of Ahmedabad), Jumma (or Friday) mosque is one of the largest mosques in India. It was built using remains of old Jain and Hindu temples, and the architecture thus is a unique blend of Hindu and Jain motifs mingling with Persian Islamic ones, lending the mosque a composite feel. A walk amongst the impressive columns and around the holy water tank soothes the mind and brings peace to one.

Ahmedabad's historic grand mosque, the Jumma Masjid, is a marvel of architecture and atmopshere. Massive in scale and rich in elegant stonecarving, I would consider it one of Ahmedabad's only must-see sights. Generally quiet and reflective, it fills up for mid-day prayers (especially on Fridays).
