Ahmed Shah Tomb, Ahmedabad

The tomb of founder Sultan Ahmed Shah of Ahmedabad is located adjacent to Jama Masjid, the city’s main congregational mosque.



This is one of the few royal tomb and it was built in the first half of the 15th century AD.



Built on a square plan, it is built on a raised platform. It consists of a central hall, four small chambers and a pillared portico. One of the key features of the mausoleum is the profusion of jali screens.

Beautiful! I like those open square tiles or bricks which are all so wonderfully open like very precious lace.
