2018-06-03 08:00:00 2018-06-03 10:00:00 Asia/Kolkata Sarkhej Rauza - Understanding its Indo-Saracenic Architecture

The majestic complex of Sarkhej Rauza is a poetic description of the life and teachings of Sufi Saint Ahmed Ganj Baksh, a person close to Ahmedabad’s founder Ahmed Shah. Various successors of Ganj Baksh kept increasing the Rauza, with artificial lakes adding to the beauty of the shimmering complex. The fusion of Muslim and Hindu architecture is symbolic of the transitional phase Ahmedabad was going through. The complex has one large dome surrounded by 13 small domes to add to its crown and is used for daily prayers by the community.

This guided tour is free.
