Bibi-ki-Masjid is an ancient mosque located at Ahmedabad in Gujarat. It was built in 1454 AD by Makhduma-I-Jahan, the mother of Sultan Ahmed Shah II. The mosque is a good example of the Indo-Islamic architecture in western India.

The peculiar feature of this mosque is its shaking minarets (40 ft tall), which are now in dilapidated state. The mosque has a royal gallery enclosed by a carved dome with a luxuriant spiral pendent.

Ahmedabad Junction Railway Station is the nearest railhead.
