"Rani Rupmati's Mosque" Gandhinagar Things to Do Tip by srhussaini

Gandhinagar Things to Do: 7 reviews and 7 photos

 
 

Rani Rupmati Masjid named after the princess of Dhar who married the Sultan of Ahmedabad, is another fine example of the Indo-Saracenic blended style.

A high central arch, 3 imposing domes, slim minarets, carved galleries and an exquisite Mihrab are the high points.

Note how the dome is raised to allow light in around the base but cut out the glare of the sun. The tomb of Rani Rupmati is next to the mosque.
