Atia mosque of Bangladesh

According to Archaeology Department officials and local historians, the Landlord (Zamindar) of Atia, Syed Khan Panni, had the mosque built on the bank of Louhaganj River by the best masons and artisans of the time (1609). Panni received Atia Pargana (District) from the Mughal Emperor Jahangir as a gift in the beginning of the 17th century.
