Abstract:The essay takes a look at the architecture of medieval Ahmadabad, with its harmonious blend of Hindu and Muslim elements. After a historical review of Ahmadabad through the 4th to 15th centuries, it specifies the elements of Hindu and Jaina influence upon the many tombs, mosques, and other Muslim monuments. The architecture of Gujarat is analyzed and its distinguishing features are identified. James Fergusson and E. B. Havell are cited to support the premise that the Jaina influence was the predominant one in shaping the Muslim architecture of Ahmadabad.
