Sketched the Sidi Saiyyed Mosque today morning with @urban_sketchers_ahmedabad
Swipe ➡️ to see an earlier artwork of the latticework of the mosque, that I had made last year.
Apart from the delicate, intricately carved lattice work that is now famous all across the world, what makes the Sidi Saiyyed Mosque in Ahmedabad more interesting is certain other stories associated with it. The forgotten stories about its construction and the people who made it. The mosque was constructed in 1573, the year in which Mughals invaded Gujarat and brought an end to the Sultanate rule in the state.
A lot has already been written about the 'Jalis' in the mosque. The 'tree of life' motif has inspired many designs and logos, including that of IIM, Ahmedabad. However, little is known of the man who commissioned this building. Saiyyed al-Habshi Sultani was a royal slave of the last Sultan of Gujarat Shams-ud-din Muzaffar Shah and later became a commander of Abyssinian general Bilal Jhajhar Khan.
Sidis are the descendants of African people brought to India as slaves by the Sultans and the Mughals and later, owing to their capabilities, rose to the ranks of trusted military commanders and generals. As the central authority weakened, some of these generals established independent kingdoms.
Today, Sidis are part of the PVTG (Particularly Vulnerable Tribal Groups). They have adopted the local language, customs, traditions and names. The only thing that still reminds them of their ancestral connections with the African Continent is their festive dance called 'Dhamal'. The Sidi Saiyyed Jali has been called the greatest specimen of stone lattice work in the world. Lest we forget, it is also the best example of and an ode to the architectural legacy of the African diaspora in India.
