Personal highlights

  1. Barobazar: up to 12 Mosques along a quiet road, some are even hidden
  2. Architecture: most Mosques only have one dome, a prayer chamber
  3. Mosques: some are abandoned, others are still in use by local villagers
  4. Villagers: talking with my hand and feet with a group of local women
  5. Journey: visiting 5 of the Mosques on my route from Jessore to Puthia
