This was the second day of my Kushtia tour. In early morning I have started my journey to find out this pre-mughal mosque which is located in Jhaudia union of the Kushtia. I have taken a bus from Chourhash mor of Kushtia town to go there. The bus was for Kushtia to Haushpur and I bought a ticket for 20 Taka to go till the stoppage Jhaudia.

After around a 50 minutes of bus journey I have reached at the Jhaudia bus stoppage. From there I had to hire a three wheeler van that would take me to this Jhaudia Shahi Mosque. This was just 5 Taka van fare from that bus stoppage. This was another lovely mosque. I love to explore the old architectures, and historical edifices, and this one was what I was expecting.

Local people use to believe that this Jhaudia mosque was built by the God. The reason behind this is, there is no information about the builder of the mosque. No data about who and when it was built. To guide the people, scholar people kept a signboard near the mosque that says "No mosques were built by Allah, all were made my human, even the most holiest mosque Mecca."
