This is a Muslim religious place"Mosque",any one from the Muslim community are allowed to pray to "Allah".This place very peaceful you will understand if you sit here for a while.
Nakhoda Mosque is the main, oldest and most popular Mosque of Kolkata. This beautiful mosque is very much respected for the Muslims and the people of India. Muslims from different countries often come to visit it. The Nakhoda Mosque is decorated very well during the religious festival.
Whenever I when to nakhoda Masjid I literally find something about this place which is unexpressible I don't know how to share my feeling with you guys whenever I go I just find myself in a very different peaceful environment whenever you are in Kolkata I do request you to visit this place because this is the only Masjid which is biggest here in Kolkata and one of the most famous one.
Great mosque and the meaning of Na khuda,"Nakhuda is a term originating from the Persian language literally meaning captain."
It was an undescribable moment in my life when I prayed Jummah in this mosque. The Mosque was very big though there are huge crowd here in Friday for Jummah Prayer. Even the mosque could not accommodate us, and we had to make way on the road. The Kolkata police gave a good security to the Muslims here. Some of non-muslims took photos when we were praying. Munajat for the whole mankind and specially victims for the syrian people touched my heart. After the pray, we entered to the mosque and walked around it. So many people were here from the different places of the country, even we found lots of Bangladeshi people here. Beside the mosque we found lots of halal resturants here. Kurta, pankabi, Burkhah were available here with a very cheap price. as people were maximum muslims, the day we went there was in Holi, but most places were opened on their national holiday.
