It swathe eve of the last winter. My maternal uncle who is police officer came to our house with his newly married wife. As our house is Jessore, his wife told my mother to visit the Shat Gombuj Mosque as a group tour. Two of my younger sisters instantly insisted my uncle on visiting the place. My uncle promised to arrange everything regarding this. So we decided to go there the next morning as our school was closed.


My Uncle hired a microbus that night for our journey. My mother prepared many delicious dishes to take with. The next morning the hired microbus arrived at our home in time. Being ready we were waiting for the car. So we set out for Bagerhat at 8 am. The journey had a festive mood for us.

We found that the architectural beauty of this building is no doubt a rare one. It is, in fact, a huge building. Visiting the mosque we went to the
