Ready for prayer at the Sarkhej Roza

What’s this?

These are prayer mats, ready for use and resting against a wall in the masjid (mosque) of Sarkhej Roza.  Is the elegant and flowing script seen behind them Urdu?  It’s quite beautiful, I think.     

Where’s this?

Sarkhej Roza, a mosque and tomb complex in Makarba, a village just outside Ahmedabad, the capital city of the state of Gujurat.
