Welcome to Bagerhat

Bagerhat was built in the 15th century by one of the most revered saints in Bangladeshi history, Khan Jahan Ali, and is a significant cradle of Islam in Bangladesh. The crowning jewel of its fabulously little-known architectural collection is the Shait Gumbad Mosque – a multi-domed medieval masterpiece. Several other mosques and mausoleums, complemented by a spectacular landscape of tranquil paddies, tropical trees, ponds and birds, are a joy to explore.

The town, about 4km from the main sights, lacks decent hotels and restaurants, so it’s sensible to visit Bagerhat as a day trip from Khulna, which is a short bus ride away.
