Galakata Mosque

This recently renovated mosque is situated on the south bank of a large pond known as Galakata Dighi about one and a half kilometres to the west from the Barobazar Bus Stand. It is a six-domed mosque. There are three niches inside the west wall along the three doors on the east side of the mosque. On the outer corner four octagonal turrets are noticeable. The inner side of the mosque especially the niches were decorated in the ornamental shape with the baked clay and tiles. It is supposed that the Galakata Mosque was built in 16th century, because of the similarity of tiles-design and construction  technique with that of Jore Bangla Mosque.
