Bagha Mosque
Bagha, Bangladesh
Built during the Husain Shahi period by Sultan Nusrat Shah in the district of Rajshahi, this mosque has an oblong prayer chamber measuring 76' x 42', which was originally spanned by ten small, inverted-cup shaped domes. The domes were recently repaired and restored. Four corner turrets with copulas extend beyond the gently sloped cornice. The eastern façade has five arched entrances each bordered by a rectangular frame. Stone pillars divide the prayer hall into two aisles and five bays. And there seems to have been a women's gallery in the northwestern corner of the mosque.  The monument boasts some of the most impressive examples of terracotta wall carvings and relief in rich floriated patterns, combined with grapes and rosettes.
