3 Mosques to Visit on Your Trip to Bangladesh

3 Mosques to Visit on Your Trip to Bangladesh

There are several tourist spots in Bangladesh that have been recognised by international organisations. It is a land rich in natural treasures as well as a location where history, culture and art are infused into everyone’s bloodstream.

Since medieval times, Bangladesh has been the seat of several Muslim kings. On its hills, several palaces, mosques and forts were constructed. The following are some of the most well-known mosques in Bangladesh that you should not miss when you visit.

  1. Sixty-Dome Mosque

Khan Jahan Ali constructed this mosque at Bagerhat. The mosque’s building was finished between 1442 and 1459. It differs from its name in that the main row of 77 tiny domes is located on the mosque’s roof.

For prayers, the mosque can hold about 2000 people. There are several openings for light and air, but the 18 arched doorways are a sight to behold.

  1. Rajbibi Mosque

The Rajbibi mosque is a single-square arched structure. Black-basalt stones were used to make the pillars while the prayer chamber’s western wall is built of black stone. The walls feature some Quranic inscriptions that are still visible today, indicating that the mosque was established in the 15th century.

Rajbibi, the lady after whom the building was named, is still unidentified, but one thing is certain: “Rajbibi” must have been a lady from a royal family who was important at the time.

  1. Small Golden Mosque

The Small Golden Mosque was constructed on Gaur, which was once a rich and powerful capital. If you do ever enter this mosque, you will be amazed by the design of the building. The mosque displays exquisite clay art, speaking to the tradition of the old Bengal itself.

The floral decorations and woodcarving work on the mosque have received a lot of attention. The flooring of the mosque was adorned with exquisite tiles when it was originally built and there is a stunning arched doorway on the east side of the building.
