Throughout mid-15th century, a Muslim colony was founded inside unfriendly mangrove forest in the Sundarbans near the coastline inside Bagerhat district by the obscure saint-General, named Ulugh Khan Jahan. He was the original torch bearer of Islam inside South who laid the midst of an affluent city in the reign of Sultan Nasiruddin Mahmud Shah (1442-59), then generally known as 'Khalifalabad' (present Bagerhat). Khan Jahan aborned the city with numerous mosques, tanks, roads and also other public buildings, the spectacular ruins of which are focused around essentially the most imposing and largest multidomed mosques throughout Bangladesh, known as your Shait-Gumbad Masjid (160'X108'). The stately fabric in the monument, serene and extraordinary, stands on the eastern bank associated with an unusually vast sweet-water aquarium, clustered around by the heavy foliage of an low-laying countryside, characteristic of an sea-coast landscape. So inside year 1459 the wonderful Azam Ulugh Khan Jahan founded this mosque, which named Shat Gambuj Mosjid. In Bengali Shat means the telephone number 60. Though it is termed Shat Gambuj Mosjid, actually the numbers of Gamboj in the mosque are generally 81. The mosque roofed around with 77 squat domes, including 7 chauchala as well as four-sided pitched Bengali domes in the center row. The vast prayer area, although provided with 11 curved doorways on east along with 7 each on upper and south for fresh air and light, presents a new dark and somber visual appeal inside. It is divided straight into 7 longitudinal aisles along with 11 deep bays by the forest of slender gemstone columns, from which spgs rows of endless arches, promoting the domes. Six foot thick, slightly tapering partitions and hollow and rounded, almost detached corner towers, resembling the bastions involving fortress, each capped by simply small rounded cupolas, call to mind the Tughlaq architecture involving Delhi.
The general appearance on this noble monument with their stark simplicity but huge character reflects the strength and simplicity in the builder. This mosque can be 160 ft long along with 108 ft. in their width. This is the most beautiful archeological and famous Mosque in Bangladesh manufactured by red burn mud.
