Swastipur Shahi Mosque

This ancient mosque built during the period of Nabab Shaishtakhan is situated at Swastippur village in Alampur union of Kushtia Sadar upazila still survives. It is learnt that the village was named Shaistapur after the name of Nawab Shaistakhan. But in course of time it became Swastipur from Shaisthapur. During the period of Shaistakhan by the side of this Swastipur village, the Shahiroad from Krisnaganj of West Bengal led up to Dhaka via Chuadanga across Kushtia and Faridpur districts. It is assumed that the mosque was built for the Shahi forces to say their prayers during their recess on the way. There were four small domes on four pillars in four corners of the mosque and the mid pillar was larger than others. The mosque has to some extent lost its former shape. Many tourists from different places come to visit this historical mosque.
