“Beautiful Mosque Beautiful Bazaar”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

Kolkata's largest mosque surrounded by the bustling Burrabazar. The noise of the market however is not enough to shroud the shrine in darkness, it's beauty shines, even though we have very poor maintenance of such a grand structure. Take your time out to visit if you can stand the bustling bazar.

“Huge Mosque”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

A huge mosque in the heart of the city but not well maintained. Its roof with the domes and minarets gives this mosque a resemblence of Akbar's masoleum @Sikandra. It is located in one of the most congested areas of the city.

“Beautiful mosque with an even more beautiful bazaar around it”
Reviewed November 2, 2011

If you wear appropriate clothes you can go into the mosque and check out the beautiful Islamic architecture of India .... this building was inspired by Emperor Akbar's tomb in Sikandra and is one of the largest mosques of eastern India with a capacity to hold 10,000 people praying together ..... the principal mosque of the city has the area surrounded by various islamic shops .... go ahead and get yourself attar (perfume), surma (kohl), janamaz (prayer mat), prayer caps, lungis et al.

A must visit locality if you like kabobs and biryani ....
