Shat Gombuj Mosjid (Bengali: সাত গম্বুজ মসজিদ; Shat Gombuj Mosque or Seven Domed Mosque) was built in the 17th century at the north west outskirt of Dhaka (in present-day Bangladesh).

History[edit]

Accounting the stylistic patterns of the mosque, it is suggested that it was built sometime around 1680 AD.[1][2] It was during the reign of the Subahdar of Bengal, Shaista Khan (r. 1664–1688). Now the mosque falls in Mohammadpur Thana region. A street, Shat Mosjid Road, commemorates the name of the mosque.
