Photograph of the south end wall of Sidi Sayyid's Mosque at Ahmadabad in Gujarat, taken by Henry Cousens in the 1880s, from the Archaeological Survey of India Collections. This mosque was built in 1572-3, by a nobleman of the time of Sultan Muzaffar III (r.1561-72) and was once part of the city walls. It has ten semicircular shaped windows carved with intricate tracery; two in the form of tree stems and branches and the others have square compartments filled with a variety of patterns. This view shows three windows on the south outer wall.
