Good architecture

Built in 1832 by Prince Golam Mohhamed a grand son of Tipu Sultan. This is a great piece of architecture. Not a must see. The building was damaged when the Kolkata Metros were being built but was later renovated with the help of the Metro authorities.

When I heard that there is a Tipu Sultan mosque in Kolkata I did not believe it. When it was confirmed that it is indeed Tipu Sultan Mosque and it has connection with Tipu Sultan, having been built by his youngest son, Prince Ghulam Mohammed I decided to visit it. I found it to be a beautiful mosque which was built way back in 1832 after Tipu Sultan's family was shifted to Kolkata after his death.
Being afternoon it was not much crowded and was closed. When authorities saw there was a visitor it was opened and shown. I could see a couple of frames having whole of holy Quran. The surroundings were neat and clean. There were lots of pigeons in the campus. I was told that after it was damaged during construction of Metro, it was restored. It is quite beautiful to look at.

Nothing special in view
Jan 2017 • Solo
The mosque is located at a very prominent location. But it is cloistered between street side shops and vendors stalls. The entrance is not a great one and a small lane. The lane is dotted with numerous small eateries. The inside is spartan and nothing to come and see. From the outside, the place possibly has impressive look but the view is all obstructed by the street side stalls.
