Ahmedabad Lens: Jama Masjid

Built in 1423 AD by Sultan Ahmed Shah, the Jama Masjid or Jami Mosque is considered to the benchmark of mosque design in Western India. The architect has incorporated two types of sanctuary facades, the screen of arches and the pillared portico, with the screen in the centre and the portico on the wings. Here are some photographs that depict the grandeur of Jama Masjid’s architecture.
