  • One of the Historical Mosque in old Town. Knowing this place by picture shown behind the 100 thaka notes. Friends brought me to visited in a late evening, I still able to see the star pool just pass through the entire gate. We have done the cleaning before we enter to the main hall. The beautiful wall in all starts design with the holy feeling. I sited together with some of the local restaurants to share our thoughts. Is a wonderful experience which I never forgot. Deep thanks to my best friends Mr Faisal who kindly help me to visited.
  • Famous Tara Mosque. It has nice space in front and the interior decorations are very attractive. Great place for prayer.
