Baitul Mukarram Mosque

Yamuna Matheswaran
Bangladesh being an Islamic country is home to a number of captivating mosques, and you'd be missing out if you didn't visit at least one. Once you've unloaded your bags and freshened up, kickstart your trip by heading to Baitul Mukarram, the national mosque, situated in the centre of Dhaka. It also happens to be the 10th biggest mosque in the world.Open daily. No entry fee.After the mosque, take a taxi/auto-rickshaw to the Armenian Church located in Old Dhaka. Built in the 18th century, the church offers a glimpse into a different world - the life of the Armenian community that thrived in the city a few centuries ago - and is architecturally fascinating.Contact the caretaker at +880 1711-049608 to arrange a visit.
