Shait Gumbad Mosque (Bagerhat District)

The Shait Gumbad Mosque is the largest mosque in the World Heritage "Historic Mosque City of Bagerhat". It is said that the construction began in 1442 and was completed in 1459.
The name of the mosque means "mosque with 60 domes", but in reality there are 11 domes x 7 rows, so there are 77 domes. (It may be counted as 81 including the dome of the tower at the four corners.)
This pop-up card was made about half of the building, so it has four rows of domes.
