The Sidi Bashir Mosque in Ahmedabad is famous for its unique construction. The mosque is known as Jhulta Minar or the Shaking Minarets.

The mosque was constructed by Sidi Bashir, a slave of Ahmed Shah Sultan. There are two minarets in the mosque, each of which are three story tall. They contain carved balconies. As the name refers, a gentle shake in one minaret, results the shake of other minaret after a brief interval of few seconds. The actual making or cause of this vibration is yet unknown.

Due to some mishap the climb on the shaking minarets is restricted. However, one can visit the mosque to observe its heritage architecture and to witness its historical magnificence.
