Weekly Photo Challenge: Pattern in Sidi Saiyyed, Ahmedabad

Walking around in Ahmedabad city, we reached the busy street corner where the 450 year old Sidi Saiyyed mosque is located. The intricate “Jali” or Lattice Work Pattern carved in stone on the rear windows of the mosque is hard to miss. Over the years, it has become synonymous with the city of Ahmedabad. We stood there mesmerised by the beautiful geometrical patterns and the tree marveling at the workmanship and finesse that the artisans possessed way back around 1573 AD. The front has a small water body and a few trees with birds happily chirping around and playing hide and seek in the filtered rays of sunlight through the “jali” located at the rear. It is a patch of quiet and peace inspite of the incessant honks from the streets around with varied decibel levels. This is a must visit during a trip to Ahmedabad and cross over to “House of MG” on the other side of the road for a meal or snacks.
