Atiya Masjid : Retrospective to Shah Baba Kashmiri

Atiya Masjid : Retrospective to Shah Baba Kashmiri
Atiya : Delduar : Tangail : Bangladesh

Atiya masjid is one the impressive architecture of 16th century in this region. it is famous for its exceptional terracotta decoration, the blends of local Bengal art and Mughal crafts. Atiya Masjid was founded in honor of Shah Baba Kashmiri, a saint from Kashmir Region. Shah Baba Kashmiri's  name is a related subject with this Masjid. But he always lives in the shadow of this famous Mughal era erection. 


Me and my friends went to Atiya again in last 29th April. This time I stayed longer than my previous visit. We found out the place of Shah Baba Kashmiri, this time. The place is not a special, but it is situated in few step distance from the masjid. Though it is in closest vicinity of masjid compound, but tourist pay a rare visit to this place. Here it is, the possible place -



The place is a one domed building, having only one chamber inside; standing so close a to a detached lake of Lauhajang River.It stands on the North-West direction from the Masjid,  just 100 steps away, beside the main road. This building is now a center place of the primary school  of Atiya. There are squared building  four pilers. I believe this building was also equally decorated like the Masjid. Trees and roots on the roof covered this building as the silent witness that this place was not habitable for a long period.
