Rani Rupmati's Mosque

Popularly known as Masjid-e-Nagina

Named after the Hindu wife of Sultan Mehmed Beghard, the Rani Rupmati's Mosque is one of the most exquisite attractions of the city of Ahmedabad. Located north of the city center, it was built in an Indo-Sarcenic blended style between 1430 and 1440.

The Rani Rupmati's Mosque is popularly known as Masjid-e-Nagina and it carries three domes supported by 12 pillars. The central dome is slightly elevated so as to allow natural light into the mosque. Other features are a high central arch, slim minarets, carved galleries and a superb mihrab.

Next to the mosque is the tomb of queen Rupmati. Nearby points of interest are a 1465 AD mosque of Muhafiz Khan, the Saiyad Usman Mausoleum and the 16th century mosque of Hasan Muhammad Chisti.
