Conservation does not mean only architectural restoration but it also means preserving the essence of the monument, which is of great historical importance to the city.
We with the vision to make you all aware have embarked upon an initiative of Heritage Yatra.
Come join in the revolution and be the change…

Sarkhej was once a prominent centre of Sufi culture in the country, where influential Sufi saint Shaikh Ahmed Ganj Baksh lived. It was on the saint’s suggestion that Sultan Ahmed Shah set up his capital on the banks of the Sabarmati, a few miles away from Sarkhej.
The want of minarets and the shallowness of its caves rather mar the outside effect. But inside ‘it is the perfection of simple grace unrivalled in India except by the Moti mosque at Agra.’ Looking across the lake the ruined buildings at the south-west corner are Mahmud Begada’s palace and harem. The Sarkhej lake covers 17 acres. Oblong in shape, it is surrounded by flights of stone steps, and has a most richly decorated supply sluice.
