Photograph of the mosque of Rani Rupmati at Ahmadabad in Gujarat.

The architecture of Ahmadabad reveals a fine synthesis of Hindu and Muslim elements, such as in the mausoleum complex of Rani Rupmati about whose life little is known. It is said that she may have been one of the chief queens of Ahmad Shah.
