Shahzadpur Mosque

Mosque in Pabna

Just outside Pabna is this splendid 15-dome pre-Mughal mosque, built in 1528 in traditional bangla (pre-Mauryan and Mauryan) style with thick walls and various arched entrances. It's low on adornments (often present in other monuments in the form of mihrabs or terracotta reliefwork), but is nonetheless an impressive sight considering its graceful proportions.
