The Chawk Mosque in Dhaka, Bangladesh, is located in the Chowk Bazaar area of the old town of Dhaka, south of the current city centre. It was originally built mostly likely during the rule of the Mughals in the 17th century and may be the earliest dated mosque in Bengal built on a high vaulted foundation. Today the original building design has been lost through multiple renovations and extensions. The original roof with three domed mosques has been demolished.
