In 1935 the writer had the opportunity to study the fascinating monuments of Gujarat Muslim Kings during his stay at Ahmadabad, which city represents an independent chapter of Muslim Art and architecture. The Majority of Ahmadabad monuments and mosques. They are adorned with marble slabs having Arabic and Persian inscription. The Naskhi Tugra style of the calligraphy of these inscriptions harmonises completely with the decorative motifs in stone carving which, constitutes a specially for Gujarat. The inscriptions are not very easy to decipher precisely owing to his artistic innovation, yet an effort was made to collect their stamp pages with the help of Prof. Sheikh Mohammad Ibrahim Dar of Gujarat college, Ahmadabad, who deserve the writer's sincere gratitude.
