The beautiful Star Mosque / Tara Masjid in Old Dhaka.

Star Mosque is located at Armanitola in Old dhaka, about 350m north of the Armenian Church. It is one of the most famous tourist attractions of Old Dhaka. The mosque, both inside and outside, is decorated with mosaic. The outer wall between the doors are decorated with the motif of Mount Fuji on glazed tiles and a crescent-and-star design decorates the upper part of the facade. Hundreds of blue stars have been created on the domes of white marble. All over the mosque the motif of stars dominate the decoration and so the mosque is called the Star Mosque (Tara Masjid in Bengali)
