AHMEDABAD THRU MY LENS - 02 APRIL 2011

The famous Sidi Sayyad mosque at Ahmedabad


Intricate work on a single rock at the mosque

Celebrations on Drive-in Road after the world cup victory - the tricolour; the fireworks; the madness; the exhilaration; the traffic jams continued well into the night.




Stone jaalis at the Sidi Sayyad mosque

The world famous 'jaali' carved out of a single rock - famous in many ways, because of its intricate and very fine sculpting - this is also the logo of IIM-A.
