Built in 1459 (the same year Khan Jahan Ali died), the famous Shait Gumbad Mosque is the largest and most magnificent traditional mosque in the country. Shait Gumbad means ‘the Temple with 60 Domes’ – a misnomer considering there are actually 81. This fortress-like structure has unusually thick walls, built in the tapering brick style, and is a hugely impressive sight. The overall architectural influence is unmistakably Turkish, and the arches within the main hall are a graceful exercise in geometry.

This ancient mosque is a UNESCO world heritage site and it is filled with history. There are actually 77 domes in the mosque. The mosque is built with red brick and inside the mosque there is a series of archways throughout the area. Surrounding the mosque there is a beautiful and peaceful garden. The garden contains signs with inspirational quotes. If you walk further on over a small ridge there is a lake.
There are bathroom facilities near the entrance to the mosque (squat toilets).
There are guards that work here who were very friendly.
This is a good stop between the Sundarbans area and the Rocket Steamer Ship.

It is one of the most amazing mosque discovered by excavating earth amidst forest covered area. It is famous for it's domes, called Sat Gambuz Mosque (means in Bangla- a mosque that has 60 domes). But in reality the mosque has 77 domes. The mosque indicates a time when many hundred Muslims could say prayer at a time- however, history cannot recall such a time when so many Muslims lived here- inside Sundarban (?), ruled by powerful Hindu rulers. It is a kind of mystery. Though there are now many versions of history that somehow tries to explain a kingdom rules by great saint Khan Jahan. Since, a tomb of Saint Khan Jahan is nearby. It is a great place to visit and explore the history of Muslim in this part of world.

Sixty dome mosque is one of the oldest archeological history of Bangladesh.
It is located in Bagerhat district in southern Bangladesh which is in Khulna Division. It is about 3 miles/ 6 Kilo meter far from the main town of Bagerhat.

This Mosque is one of the iconic Mosque of south Asia. This Mosque has 60 Dome. As this location is close to the Sundarban forest you can see lots of green around the mosque.
Near the mosque there is a Majar of 'Khan-Jhan-Ali'. In this Majar you will have a pond where you can find two great Alligator called Kala-Pahar and Dhola-Pahar. The two alligator brought by Khan-Jhan-Ali. The current generation of alligator are from that family chain.

This wasn't as impressive as I had expected. It was undergoing some internal renovations when I was there, but it just didn't have the wow factor for me.
