Dalal Bazar Zamindar Bari is located on the south adjacent to the Lakshmipur district town. The Rajgate, palace, inner apartment, Anandapukur of Zamindar Bari comprising five acres of lad, will captivate a tourist. Lakshmi Narayan Baishnab came to Dalal Bazar about four hundred years ago to trade in clothes. His descendants first obtained trade agency then became Zamindars.

Actually their Zamindary was at Roypur. As they had good relationship with the Zamindars of Dalal Bazar, so they bought landed property at Kamankhala near Zamindar’s house and founded abodes of Zamindars.

The reason of calling it Jin-er Masjid because it was next to impossible/ beyond human ability to dig more than one dighis, and making bricks within that short period of time. To reserve water throughout the year, a big dark tank was constructed on the south side of the three-doomed high walled mosque.
