Star Mosque (Tara Masjid) Tours

Star Mosque (Tara Masjid)
Though most are used to seeing stars only at night, a visit to Star Mosque—known by locals as Tara Masjid—is filled with plenty of celestial sights. This stunning mosque was built in the first half of the 19th century, and both its interior and exterior are covered in hundreds of colorful mosaic stars that have given it its name.

A white reflecting pool surrounding a massive white star is stationed in front of the mosque’s impressive exterior. Nearly a dozen archways guide travelers and worshipers alike to the stunning white marble domes of this iconic religious structure that is certain to be a highlight of any visit to Old Dhaka.

Practical Info

The mosque is located about 350 meters north of the Armenian Church in Old Dhaka. Though the mosque is typically closed outside of prayer times, non‐Muslims can ask the caretaker to open the gates for a visit. Women should be prepared to cover their shoulders, knees and hair on a visit to the mosque.
Address: Abul Khairat Road, Dhaka, Bangladesh
