Nothing much. Not architecturally. Religious significance may be for muslims. Neglected and not maintained.

My guide tells me that the whole place and the architectural styles represents the 15th century tastes and life and from what I have seen at the place, India must have been a center to architectural connoisseurs that can very well challenge the engineers of today. The work around the place is one of the best works I have seen. The mosque also has the remains of a palace in its vicinity. The whole complex is great in beauty and its size.

The Sarkhej Roja is a Sufi mosque, known as a dharga because it holds the tombs of royalty and a saint, Shaykh Ahmad Khattu, who came to Gujerat around 1400AD and was reputed to live 108 0r 111 years. The mosque is next to a huge tank, late 14th or early 15th century, mostly dry when we visited. On the opposite bank from the mosque are the remains of the King's and Queens' palaces. The sheer scale of the place is amazing, and it is fascinating to imagine what it was like when first built.

Sarkhej Roja is one of the finest Islamic monuments of Gujarat but is unfortunately seldom visited by tourists and its maintenance is also neglected by the local authorities. It is a beautiful historical complex worth visiting, some parts now unfortunately lie in ruins (except the mosque). This place also lacks tourist amenities. The location could be one factor why this place is ignored as it is in the outskirts of Ahmedabad and far away from the historic monuments of the old city.

Sakhej Roza was bustling with people on the Sunday evening when we visited it. It seems to be most sought after place for people to gather and pray.
We never felt unwelcomed. The people were very friendly and we could easily move around without any hesitations.

It also has some exquisite collection of jaali works. The biggest pond was dry, however it would be amazing in its hay days when it will be filled with water.

It also houses the tombs of Mohammad Begra and Rani Roopba.
