Peaceful place to visit. One thing you need to consider it that do not leave your shoes and sleepers outside. There are care takers, handover it to them else you will loose it. I have lost mine 😢
Biggest mosque in Kolkata. Beautiful architecture. The external beauty of this historic place may improve.
Beautiful and historical mosque, The mosque in kolkata.👌 And many types of shop to bring clothes, food, etc And very lovely people's live in this place.
One of the oldest Mosque in the region. This Mosque is very historical and remarkable to Muslim Community. People gather here for prayers and religious discussion. Old Mosque but now a days this is refurbished and looks new with light colours.
What a beautiful place to be in any time of the day. Offer namaz, read a book & just sit & relax. Specially in the evening, Feel the serenity of this place, watch fishes in the large aquarium below the fountain & watch people talking & offering namaz. Such an iconic mosque in a very very busy locality. Fortunately this is the only place in the locality maintaining cleanliness.
