Even though this is a small mosque in the middle of a busy road, architecturally, it is a marvel. Particularly, the "jalis"or the carved windows are beautiful beyond imagination. The delicate carving and the aesthetic sense are amazing! Hats off to the artisans who carved them. The location of the Siddi Syde Mosque is amazing. Thereis a heritage hotel and... More

It's true that the two stonework screens are incredible, but the mosque itself is not so interesting. Crossing the street to reach it requires taking your life in your hands.

This is a simple mosque with the beautiful work done on the window/ventilation. Its on the main road. Parking is a big problem.

The Sidi Saiyyed Mosque (સિદૂી સૈયદ ની જાળી), built in 1573 (૧૫૭૩), is one of the most famous mosques of Ahmedabad. As attested by the marble tablet fixed on the wall of the mosque, it was built by Sidi Saeed or Sidi Saiyyed, an Abyssinian in the retinue of Bilal Jhajar Khan, general in the army of the last Sultan...

This is monument of the city as the whole city is known by this jali. It is so intricate that one gets amazed how much time must have been spent making this

Disappointing, not because of the beauty but as there is no access to the Jali. Parking is a problem for once. Then access to seeing it is a mess. There is an active Muslim prayer hall, which forbids direct entry. Either tourism department should make arrangements for direct access or remove this from tourism destination. What a waste.
