Architecture of Bangladesh

The style and pattern of country’s architecture has undergone changes at different stages of history due to influence of foreign patterns. The influence of Muslim Architecture on pre-Muslim indigenous style is vivid. The climate and attitude of ruling upper class also characterized the development of patterns and architectural designs in Bangladesh. In the Mughal era the predominant architectural patterns and designs were the central domes, arches and tall central entrances. The churches introduced the European style. Fusion of Mughal and European styles took root at the turn of the last century. The modern architecture which is common today started in the 1960s
We still have some Mosques like Chhota sona and Kusumba Mosques which were made in the pre Mughal period having terracotta art. In the Mughal era strong horizontal parapet was introduced. A lot of changes which were the typical Mughal style came with this particular age.
