Barobazar(বারোবাজার) is a place where you can find a lot of old time mosques are located very near to each other. We believe that a civilization did exist around that place. That time the place was known as Mohammadabad(মোহাম্মাদাবাদ). The government has published a map of the old city Mohammadabad(মোহাম্মাদাবাদ) for the visitors.


I have visited eight mosques from there and the list of mosques are presented below. Order of the mosque is the order I have followed during visit.


1. Noongola Mosque(নুনগোলা মসজিদ):


This mosque is a singled dome mosque and located at the village Mitha Pukur(মিঠা পুকুর). Alike to the village name, this mosque is also known as Mitha pukur mosque(মিঠা পুকুর মসজিদ). GPS coordinate of the mosque is (23°17'53.17"N, 89° 8'50.52"E).











2. Pir Pukur Mosque(পীর পুকুর মসজিদ):


This is another dilapidated mosque from the Barobazar(বারোবাজার). Only few remnant is available. This mosque is situated beside a large pond. Inside the mosque has a tin shaded building where people use to pray on a regular basis. GPS location of the mosque is (23°18'9.06"N, 89° 8'41.44"E).
