Tangail: Korotia Jomidar Bari & Mosque(করটিয়া জমিদার বাড়ি ও মসজিদ)

Korotia Jomidar Bari

Korotia Jomidar bari(করটিয়া জমিদার বাড়ি) is located at the Korotia of Tangail(করটিয়া, টাঙ্গাইল). The famous Jomidar(জমিদার) of Tangail, Wajed Ali Khan Panni(ওয়াজেদ আলী খান পান্নি) built that palace beside the Putia river(পুটিয়া নদী) at Korotia(করটিয়া). The whole Jomidar palace premise having 1000m x 500m dimension comprises of lot of old buildings and ponds.

Mosque near the jomidar bari

The main gate of the building is currently locked and no outsiders are entertained to have an entry. So I had to return back from there without visiting that archaic building.

So if you go there, make sure you can have an entry. From the local people I came to know that the palace is open for public at 1st and 12th boishak(বৈশাখ) of Bengali calendar, and the two Eid days.

Minaret of the mosque

Near the Jomidar bari(জমিদার বাড়ি) an old mosque is available. The mosque is having eight domes in two rows. First row is having five equal sized smaller domes and the second one is having three domes where middle one is the largest.

At the eastern side of the mosque, a 15 feet tall minaret is available with old stairs. I don't know the exact built date of the mosque. If you know, you can share as a comment at below.
