Nakhoda Mosque - Review

The Islamic praying place is the largest in Kolkata and much revered among Muslims in the city. Brought forth by Abdur-Rahim Osman, the mosque gets its distinctive charm from its Indo-Saracenic architecture, driving architects from all across the world to come here and see. Everything, from its dome to tall minarets bespeaks of the elegance and efforts that have been put to built it. It can accommodate around 10,000 men at a time and is surrounded by hand carved granite work that will amaze you. You can even find a shop outside the place, selling numerous items, from clothes, shoes and what not! If you're visiting during Islamic festival, you can witness the huge celebration that is held here.

  • A really good place. The architecture of the mosque is really good. A must visit in Kolkata. But I'm giving it a 4 star and not a 5 star because of the behaviour of the security and administrative personnel who are in charge of the mosque.

  • During iftar time I visited the mosque. It's full of crowd. Lots of people including children and women gather here to break Ramadan fasting. Well maintained, clean and historical. Loved it
