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

The architecture of the Bagerhat mosques - and Shait Gumbad in particular - is very different from that of the Moghuls or indeed of other areas of central and southern Asia. Well worth a look.

Fascinating old building that is still very much a working mosque. Elegant dome structure held up by dozens of internal columns.

This Mosque is on the 10Taka bill but under construction. Bamboo supports everywhere. Best pick a day when not so many people too. Not very well kept and 200T pp to enter.

It was refreshing to visit a historical place. The architecture is special with so many domes in the roof. The caretaker was forthcoming with the historical details and facts of the place. There is a tank (pond) behind the mosque. I wish they had made it a bit touristy, so that visitors could relax and enjoy.

Shait Gambad Mosque is a great place to just see and wander around, recalling how the days at that time might have been. I could tell it as good as a museum. Sightseeing can also be pleasant. Shait Gambad is decorated from top to the end and you can never get bored. There is also space if you want to... More

The mosque itself is very plain and relatively uninteresting. What I found much more exciting was the surrouding area behind the lake, where you can stroll through authentic village life, with beautiful children happy to play football with you.

Thanks to Bangladesh Travel Homes to let us explorer one of the most beautiful Place in Bangladesh. Don't forget to take Camera with you and must take picture inside of this mosque.
