National Mosque Bangladesh

Baitul Mukarram (Arabic: The holy house) is the national mosque of Bangladesh. Located at the heart of Dhaka, capital of Bangladesh, this mosque was founded in the 1960s. It has a capacity of 30,000 worshippers, making it the 10th biggest mosque in the world, however the mosque still gets overcrowded with faithful muslim worshippers. Because of this, the Bangladeshi government have decided to add extensions to the mosque.

Architecture

The mosque complex was designed by architect T Abdul Hussain Thariani. The National Mosque of Bangladesh has several modern architectural features whilst at the same time it preserves the traditional principles of mosque architecture. Baitul Mukarram’s resemblance to the famous Ka’abah at Mecca makes this a unique mosque in Bangladesh.
