Havelis & Mosques – Ahmedabad old city

Smile please ladies…


Next stop was the Jaali-wali mosque. i.e. the Sidi-sayeed mosque. Though a very small monument, the claim to fame of this place are a set of exquisitely carved ‘jaali’s or windows. One of which is the inspiration for the IIMA logo…

This is the insipiration for the IIMA logo…

By the time we were ready to leave, it was around 2.00pm and we headed to the ‘Mangaldas Ni Haveli’ heritage hotel for lunch. This place is on the other side of the road from the Sidi-sayeed mosque.

After all the walking around we had done, we had worked up a good appetite and the Gujarati thaali was indeed a tasty experience…

A little bit of shopping in the curio shop and a few pix later, we were ready to call it a day and head back to campus.

So many more places to cover.. so little time. Hmmm… That was all for this round. Will find some free weekend sometime soon to cover a few more interesting places.
