Its a big dome shaped mosque with nothing inside. There are 4 doors on 4 sides, the doors are really narrow. The wall is so thick that even in the scorching heat outside it felt like ac inside. Ppl say that initially it was a jail for prisoners, as light is almost impenetrable. Later it was turned into a mosque.

By the time we reached here it was already evening, and the lush green surroundings around it looked even more beautiful. The mosque structure is decent but there are more impressive mosques in Gour

This is a single domed brick structure, called as Mosque. But it is evidently a Mausoleum architecturally similar to Eklakhi Mausoleum at Pandua, besides there is no mihrab in it. It perhaps served the purpose of the tomb of Sultan Jalaluddin Muhammad (1415-31). It was possibly built in c.15th century AD (as per ASI)
