Saiyad Usman Mosque Wikipedia
Saiyad Usman was the minister of Qutubul Alam, also known as Saiyad Burhanuddin. He founded the Usmanpura village which is now the part of Ahmedabad. He died in 1458 and the mausoleum dedicated to him was built by Mahmud Begada in 1460. It is architecturally similar to Ganj Baksh tomb at Sarkhej Roza.
The mosque was havily damaged in 2001 Gujarat earthquake but was restored by Archaeological Survey of India in 2009.
The mosque, with a minaret at each end, is in the style of the Sarkhej Roza. The mosque is a pure Hindu style without an arch. Inside, the arrangement of pillars, is neither so simple nor so clear as at Sarkhej. One peculiarity of tho tomb is that its dome is supported on twelve instead of on eight pillars. This change gives much variety and the tomb is altogether the most successful sepulchral design carried out in the pillared style at Ahmedabad.
