From Sidi Sayed Mosque don't go to the Nehru bridge, but turn sideaways, towards Mirzapur road, and pretty soon you will reach Rani Rupavati mosque. In fact, another of its names - the Queen's Mosque in Mirzapur. It was built by one of the sultans of Gujarat in honor of his wife, Rupavati. Actually, her tomb is near the mosque, under the open, supported by pillars canopy with five domes – one large and four smaller ones.
Nice mosque. It quite clearly refers to the architecture of sacred buildings, which was later defined as "Gujarati style". The same washed out brown color, the same rich carvings inside. The balconies under the windows from each side of other entrances look especially original.
If you go to the mosque and moving on Mirzapur road, further, that in the end you will reach the Jain temple named Hateesingh Mandir. On the way to the right is another mosque.

This mosque was never in our list of "Things to do". But the driver of our car, recognizing our keen interest and appreciation for architecture of the bygone years / era, suggested we visit this place and took us there.
This was so not like the typical mosques. It had a touch of Hindu in it. - of-course because it was built by a Muslim king for his Hindu queen. The Jharokhas at the entrance of the mosque is still intact and the interiors are also intact.
Besides the architecture, there is not much to see. If you are not an enthusiast in architecture, you can avoid this place. Also, women are not allowed inside this particular mosque. We did not know this earlier as there was nobdody around and hence enjoyed the interiors as well.

Known for its beautifully carved domes, skilfully sculptured minarets and beautiful galleries, this mosque is an exquisite example of the amalgamation of Hindu and Muslim styles of architecture.

This mosque is in the old city of Ahmedabad which has been built by Mahmud Begada for this wife Rani Rupmati. The mosque is beautiful with intricate carvings on the walls, pillars and minarets. This Indo-Islamic architecture is designated as a monument of national importance. Highly recommended to visit when in Ahmedabad
