The Mosque City of Bagerhat is a formerly lost city situated in the outskirts of Bagerhat, at the meeting point of the Ganges and Brahmaputra rivers. This ancient city, formerly known as Khalifatabad, according to numismatics, was founded by the warrior saint Turkish general Ulugh Khan Jahan in the 15th century. It was a vast, prosperous city and administrative headquarters once upon a time on this swampy and marshy area. This historic city, listed in Forbes Magazine as one of the 15 lost cities in the world, has more than 50 Islamic monuments in the distinct Bengal variant of Indo-Islamic architecture. This site was declared as a UNESCO world heritage site in 1983. There are 7,815 mosques, 238 temples and 17 churches in this city. The main attraction is the Sixty Dome Mosque (Shait Gambuj Mosque). Apart from the Sixty Dome Mosque, the other buildings including Khan Jahan Mausoleum, Nine Dome Mosque, Singair Mosque, Bibi Begni Mosque, Chunakhola Mosque, Ronobijoypur Mosque, Kodla Math (Ajodha Moth), Ghora Dighi and Majar Dighi (Thakur Dighi) are remarkable.
