Gorar Mosque

Gorar Mosque or Gorai Mosque which is 2 kilometres away from Barobazar is an excellent and peerless evidence of the Islamic traditions. There stands a pond to the east of the mosque.  The existence of broken bricks and signs of planted bricks in the ground at places bear testimony that there was a metal road that led to the pond from the mosque. The three-domed mosque with its veranda is square in size and shape. A grave has been found beside the mosque. Many people think that it is the grave of a saintly person named Gorai. According to his name this mosque is called Gorar or Gorai mosque. At present regular prayers are offered in the mosque. The mosque has 1.5 metre (5 feet) wide walls.
