    Travel south along the highway, and a short day tour will bring you to the Sarkhej complex, a cluster of monuments dating from the Sultanate.

    Sarkhej was the home of the Muslim religious leader Ahmed Shaik, who was a spiritual guide of Sultan Ahmed Shah. In 1411, he was one of the 4 Ahmeds who laid the foundation of the city. The Rauza or Maqbara (mausoleum) of Shaik Ahmed Gunj Baksh - 140 ft in area is one of the largest mausolea in India, rivalling the Taj Mahal.

    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.
