Sarkhej Roza needs immediate restoration:Minister

"It can be seen that this old monument of historical significance is crumbling fast. It needs immediate attention and if not restored on priority, it will be a big loss to heritage," he said after visiting the monument.

Ahmed also enquired about the measures taken for the upkeep of this monument from Archaeological Survey of India officials.

He was accompanied by officials of ASI when he visited the protected monument located in village Makraba near here.

The mosque is known as 'Ahmedabad's Acropolis', after 20th century architect Le Corbusier's famous comparison of this mosque's design to the Acropolis of Athens.

Although there are many rozas across Gujarat, the Sarkhej Roza is the most revered. It was once a prominent centre of Sufi culture in the country, where influential Sufi saint Ganj Baksh lived.
