Being born in the Chawk Bazaar area of old Dhaka, this historic mosque used to be our mosque. Growing up, I prayed many Jumma, Shab-e-barat and Eid prayers in this mosque along with my father and brothers. This is one of the oldest mosques in Dhaka. The mosque was originally built by Subahdar Shayesta Khan in 1676. Chawk Bazaar Shahi mosque has a very tall minaret which used to be the tallest structure in Dhaka. The minaret could be seen from any place in Dhaka. The interior and the exterior of this beautiful mosque is adorned with marvelous mosaic made with broken glasses. The mosque is very big and has three floors.

Chawkbazar Shahi Mosque is located at the Chowk Bazaar area in the old part of the Dhaka city. The three domed mosque above the platform is now a multi-storied building. As per history of this historic mosque, it was built in 17th Century during the rule of Subedar of Bengal, Shaista Khan. Its beautiful architectural design represents the very old age Architectures. It’s a very good to visit the mosque for the history lovers but have to face the huge jam-packed area of the old part of the city.
