The lovely mosque city of Bagerhat comprises a unique and intriguing infrastructure. Having a mere glimpse of it, one can realize the considerable technical skill and craftsmanship the monuments have undergone. Many of the Islamic monuments and other mosques to be found in this ancient city were built of brick that was not a commonly used building material at the time. The most famed monument in Bagerhat is the single-domed dargah which serves as Khan Jahan’s mausoleum and located on the northern embankment of the Thakur Dighi. It is a common belief in Bagerhat that Khan Jahan Ali chose this site a few years before he died, and he even laid a tombstone upon which his followers later recorded his death. Nine-Domed Mosque, located on the western bank of Thakur Dighi, is a graceful squire mosque which has recently been repaired and covered with nine low hemispherical domes supported on four slender stone columns. In plain and elevation, the single domed small monument closely resembles the Singair Mosque and has suffered heavily at the hands of the inclement weather of this area.
