SIDDI SAYYED'S MOSQUE, SIDDI SAYYED'S MOSQUE tour, Visit SIDDI SAYYED'S MOSQUE of GujaratLocation : Ahmedabad, Gujarat.
Built By : Siddi Sayyid

Famous For : Its Delicately Carved Windows.

Other Attractions : Bhadra, Alif Ali's Mosque.

The Mosque of Sidi Sayed, near Lal Darwaja is world-renowned for its magnificent stone tracery. Sidi Sayed, is celebrated all over the world for its exquisite stone window tracery - a superb example of delicate carving that transforms stone into filigree. Known as Shaking Minaret or Jhulta Minar. When one minarets is shaken the other one begins to vibrate. The mosque was obviously built by master craftsmen and the crucial mechanism that causes the vibration is still a mystery.

The Exquisite Jali Work
A prominent feature on the front of glossy city brochures, Sidi Sayyid's Mosque, famed for the ten magnificent 'jali' screens lining its upper walls sits in the centre of a busy traffic circle in the northwest corner of Bhadra. The two semicircular screens high on the western wall are the most spectacular, with floral designs exquisitely carved out of the yellow stone so common in Ahmedabad's mosques. The eastern face is open, revealing a host of pillars that divide the hall into heroes and animals from popular Hindu myths - one effect of Hindu and Jain craftsmanship on an Islamic tradition that rarely allowed the depiction of living beings in its mosques. The gardens around it afford good views of the screens. Women cannot enter this mosque.

The solid fortified citadel, Bhadra, built of deep red stone in 1411 AD as Ahmedabad's first Muslim structure, is relatively plain in comparison to later mosques. In front of the citadel is a small public garden and Alif Shah's Mosque, gaily painted in green and white. Further east, beyond the odoriferous meat market in Khas Bazaar, is Teen Darwaja, a thick-set triple gateway built during Ahmed Shah's reign that once led to the outer court of the royal citadel. A trio of pointed arches engraved with Islamic inscriptions and detailed carving spans the busy road below and shelters cobblers and peddlers.
