Star Mosque

The star mosque is one of the very beautiful mosque of Bangladesh. This mughal style mosque has five domes with hundreds of big and small twinkling stars on walls. Mirza Golam Pir built a three domed mosque in the 19th Century. In 1926 a local businessman named Alijan Bepari added a verandah to the mosque, and even later in the 1987, Bangladesh Government added two more domes with it making a five domed mosque. The stars have been created by setting pieces of chinaware on white cement. Star decoration on its domes gave it such a name. If you watch it from the front and from far it looks as it shining above the surface of the earth. The inside of this mosque even more beautiful than the outside. Lovely mosaic floor and excellent tiles with many floral patterns set on the walls are all on complete harmony.
