There are several bus services run between Gulistan and Munshiganj town. Such buses are Nayan paribahan, Dhaka transport, etc. Using those buses you could reach in Munshiganj by approximately two hours. From Munshiganj it would be convenient to rely on reserved auto rickshaw instead of public transports. It would be much faster and hassle free. I came here after visiting the Rampal Dighi. It was easier for me to use a rickshaw to come here. GPS coordinate of Baba Adam mosque is (23°33'23.1"N, 90°29'47.1"E).
