King's Palace at Sarkhej Roza, Ahmedabad

At Sarkhej Roza Complex in Ahmedabad is the ruins of 15th century Royal Palaces. One among them is King's Palace on the Southern Bank of the lake that was dry during our visit.


This was built in the 13th century by Sultan Mahmud Begada. Though in ruins, it still showcases past glory. 



By the side of the palace also has a small mosque used by the Sultan for his prayers
