Ghayebi Dighi Masjid, (Bengali: গায়েবী দিঘী মসজিদ, Arabic: مسجد بركة الغائبي‎), was an ancient mosque located in the Barothakuri Union, Zakiganj Upazila in Sylhet District. It is an important site managed by the Department of Archaeology in Bangladesh.[1] A 400-year-old stone inscription was discovered here and is now in display at the Bangladesh National Museum.[2] The stone inscription suggests it was built in the 17th century.
