Baitul Mukarram Mosque, India

From series “Top Largest and Famous Mosques Worldwide”
Year: 1960.

Baitul Mukarram is the National Mosque of Bangladesh. Located at the centre of Dhaka, capital of Bangladesh, the mosque name translates as a “The Holy House”. The structure of Baitul Mukarram National Mosque resembles the Kaaba in Mecca. For the building were used quite unusual materials. The main building material was a light stone, then the walls were lined with the black panels.

Baitul Mukarram Mosque, India Near the entrance to the mosque you can see an artificial pond with fountains and decorative plants. The mosque was finished in 1960. Abdulhusein Thariani was the author of the project. A special attention deserves a luxurious cupola of the mosque. It is decorated with delicate curving and golden panels. The mosque is surrounded with a pure white marble square. At the background of the light shades, vivid flowerbeds look very impressive.

When the mosque was projected the architect could save the main principles of the traditional Mughal architecture. However, this mosque has several features that make it not a precise copy of Kaaba’s mosque. The building was put on a high platform. The National Mosque’s building is eight storied and its main building doesn’t have a cupola, as in many other mosques. Excessive ornamentation is avoided throughout the mosque, since minimizing ornamentation is typical of modern architecture. The building has two inner yards that’s why the temperature there is always comfortable. Next - Mezquita Mosque
