Shait Gumbad Mosque

[[File:Sixty Dome Mosque in Bagerhat Bangladesh.JPG|200px|thumb|right|The Shait Gumbad Mosque]]Literally meaning the "Mosque of 60 domes", it's slightly misnamed as it actually has 77. It was built in 1549, and is one of the country's best mosques. While it's not ''un-''interesting, if you've seen any mosque in India, Pakistan, Iran, or Afghanistan from this period you'll be pretty underwhelmed. Worse is that foreigners are ''charged'' to see the mosque which is nearly sacrilegious. Don't expect the grumpy staff to let you into the museum if you visit around lunchtime, and yes, you'll still have to pay to see the mosque even if you skip the museum.

Mazar Khan Jahan Ali

The tomb of Khan Jahan Ali is a major pilgrimage site in the area, and hundreds of visitors stop here daily to pay their respects to one of the country's more famous holy men. It's south of the main road and about 4km from the bus station. As with most ''dargahs'' the tomb is covered in colorful cloth, and women must pay their respects from the courtyard outside.
