I visited with high expectations of a beautiful building but it was not as grand as I had hoped. Admittedly it is a Mosque and not built for Tourists, I was pleased I visited, everyone was friendly, but for me it didn't have the wow factor I was hoping for.

The compound has a small museum which is currently under renovation, so access is temporarily restricted. Just behind the mosque, there is a wonderful lake. Seat for a while and relax.The compound had... More

I stopped at this historical site on my way to Barisal from Khulna. The mosque is undoubtedly beautiful, but due to the restoration work, it looked "too new" to me. I don't know, may be it's just me but that is how I felt. Entry fee is BDT 20 for nationals. Upon entering the mosque, me and my friend experienced... More

An ancient 15th century mosque. It has been declared as "World Heritage" by UNESCO. Located inside a lavish green field. It is still used by the local Muslims for prayer. There is a small museum also in the same campus. It is one of the most famous mosque in Bangladesh. One can easily travel to this mosque from Khulna city.

I couldn't shut up about Bangladesh so I went a bit nuts writing about it in my blog banditsinc.org This is a must for those traveling to Bangladesh. While some might find it boring- just a dome and a mosque, those who love religion, architecture, culture and arts will appreciate the site. Completed in 1459,, it is the largest mosque... More

Shait-Gumbad Mosque is a Muslim monument of 15th century. If you love history and architectural beauty, Shait-Gumbad Mosque is the right place for you. Besides, the landscape of the adjacent area is excellent. There are a number of beautiful ponds near the mosque.

It seems that all over Bangladesh, it is now a phenomenon to repair almost all the World Heritage sites all at once. This mosque is of no exception. As many other reviewers pointed out that it is an interesting architecture. For foreigners the fee is 20 Taka which is $2.5. Considering one has to pay more than $25 per person... More
