About Siddi Saiyad Mosque

Sidi Saiyad's Mosque , Close To The River, Was Once Part Of The Old Citadel Wall. Constructed In 1573 By Sidi Saiyad, A Sometime Slave Of Ahmed Shah, It Is One Of Ahmedabad's Most Stunning Buildings, With Exquisite Jalis Spider-web Fine - Depicting The Intricate Intertwining Of The Branches Of A Tree. Entry Fee: None Timing : 5.00 Am To 11.00 Pm. Photography: Allowed (during Namaz - From Outside Only) On The Exterior, The Sidhhi Saiyyed Mosque Resembles A Maze Of Traceries. On Closer Scrutiny, Especially Of The Interious, You Will See Intricately Carved Stone Screens, Or Jalis. On All The Ten Semi-circular Windows Of The Mosque, You Can See This Stonework. The Best Examples Of The Filigree Work In Stone At This Small Mosque Are The Intertwining Tree-like Forms Flanking The Mihrab And Minbar. While A Lotus-shaped Ventilator Was Taken Away Many Years Ago For Display At The British Museum, Some Of The Intricate Symbols Have Also Been Duplicated At The Museums Of New York And Kensington. The Architecture Of The Mosque And The Jali Work Point To Indo-saracenic Influences. This Elegant Mosque Was Built By Siddhi Saiyyed, A Slave Of Sultan Ahmed Shah, In 1573. You Can Carry Back Miniature Models Of The Filigree Work In Stone If You Are A First-time Visitor.
