The iconic hotel offers a view of Ahmedabad's heritage spots including the 'Siddi Sayeed Ni Jaali' mosque the Abes visited earlier in the day.

It is located in the vicinity ofthe main heritage attractions like Bhadra Fort, Juma Masjidand Manek Chowk.

After visiting the 16th century Sidi Saiyyed Mosque in the evening, Modi and the Abe couple took a brief tour of the heritage hotel property and enjoyed the a performance of musical instrument 'Jal Tarang'.
