On the western bank of the pond called Thakur Dighi, and a short walk from Mazhar Khan Jahan Ali, the recently repaired Nine-Domed Mosque (Noy Gombuj Masjid; নয় গম্বুজ মসজিদ) is an impressive structure, with eight small domes on its roof surrounding one larger central dome. The mihrabs (niches) are embellished with terracotta floral scrolls and foliage motifs, with a prominent chain-and-bell terracotta motif in the centre.

You might also want to check out the tumbledown Zinda Pir Mosque , which is about 500m off to the west of Mazhar Khan Jahan Ali, and contains a number of small tombs within its overgrown grounds.
