The five-story deep structure brags strong pillars that date back to 1499 when it was used as a refuge for the people, where spiritual sustenance was provided along with water. Sarkhej Roja is a mosque, tomb, and palace complex that brags some of the most unique Indo-Saracenic architectures, also known as the Acropolis of Ahmedabad.

The architecturally rich structure contains fervor towards the deity worshipped and is said to have stood for more than 2,500 years, albeit it may have gone through several major reconstructions.
