Shat Gombuj Mosque
The Shat Gombuj Mosque in Bagerhat is one of the three Heritage Sites in Bangladesh and a place of great historical importance. It is situated in the suburbs of Bagerhat, some 175 kilometres southwest of Dhaka. It is a 15th century Islamic edifice founded by khan Iahan Ali, a great preacher of Islam who came here from Turkey. Shat Gambuj Mosque is an instance of exquisite Moghul Architectural feat. The unique mosque has seventy-seven domes, though it is called Shatgombuj Mosque (Sixty Domed Mosque). Shat Gombuj Mosque has sixty pillars supporting the impeccably beautiful and curved domes that have worn away with the passage of time. The pond dug by Khan Jahan Ali also attracts a good number of people as well. I think anybody having the least interest in historical sites would enjoy visiting the site. It enthralls your mind, soothes our eyes and takes us to the glorious past. So we should preserve the place from being decayed. We need both national and international attention as well as public awareness to save it.
