Miniature Replica Shat Gambuz Mosque
Miniature Replica, made of marble stone
With a vision to Brand Bangladesh differently, Hat Bakso has developed various country branding artifacts, among which the Sixty Dome Mosque is one of the archaeologically important structure.
It is also an UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Sixty Dome Mosque is the largest mosque in Bangladesh from the sultanate period (1204-1576).
It is considered as one of the great congregational mosque by Khan Jahan Ali in the early 15th century at Bagerhat. It was built during the Bengal Sultanate by Ulugh Khan Jahan, the governor of the Sundarbans. The construction of the mosque was started in 1442 and completed in 1459.
However, it’s been delineated as one of the most impressive Muslim monuments in the Indian subcontinent. The mosque was not only used for prayer purposes but also as a madrasha and assembly hall. Though it has been named as Sixty dome mosque, it has 81 domes: seventy circular domes upon the prayer hall, seven chauchala domes upon the central aisle and four domes upon the corner towers.
The freestanding 55 stone and five brick pillars (60 pillars) support the whole roof. The name of the mosque might derived not from the number of domes (77), but from the number of the supporting pillars(60). The top part of the central arched opening had a triangular gable wall, from which the cornice slopes down towards the corner. The cornices on the other sides are typically curved. The parallel bamboo rafters and cross bars of the hut are also imitated from within. There are four towers, of which Two were used to call Azaan.
The interior is divided into many aisles and bays by slender columns, which ceased in multiple arches that support the roof. The Chauchala vault of this mosque is believed to be the pioneering illustration of the reproduction of rural bamboo-roof into a masonry vaulted roof. This sixty dome mosque miniature replica can be one of the aesthetic collections that represents our beautiful Bangladesh. Likewise, if you are looking for gifts, you can easily choose this mini showpiece as option
