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.

Nakhoda Mosque, Kolkata Reviews
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.
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.
A very old and historical mosque. A bit dilapidated. Needs some immediate maintenance. Sad to see its condition and lost glory.
An iconic landmark in the city of joy. Nakhoda Masjid which falls in Coolutolla, Bada. Bazaar is a magnificent piece of architecture dipped in religious piousness. With huge minarets and an a beautiful open space, the structure looks very impressive. Visit it at night to see the beuty of the adjacent market filled with different sorts of vendors and food offerings.
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
