That is an unknown past associated with this magnificent and ornate mosque. We noticed that similar to many other historical monuments of the 16th century, this construction was also incorporated with the fabulous curvatures and distinct filigree work. The place was not too large but numerous admirers were present there. The mosque includes a tomb and a series of columns, accompanied with a pair of minarets. In front of the minarets is depicted the old Muslim architectural work.
The graceful columns of the mosque are an evidence of the beautiful craftsmanship of the long-gone era. We went upstairs and found an isolated area of worship for the then women, which was called ‘Jenana’.
Rani Sipri’s Mosque is undoubtedly a timeless gem in the city of Ahmedabad. Queen Sipri was the Hindu wife of the then Sultan of Gujarat and she commissioned this mosque in 1514 AD. Isn’t it surprising that the inter-religious marriages were so common in the Indian royalty at that time, but is looked down in these modern times? This thought was cultivating within all three of us.
We admired the mosque and praised the Islamic history that consists of so many gifted architects and this Rani Sipri’s Mosque in Ahmedabad is a testimony of the cherished architectural tradition.
