Golakata Mosque and Dighi were built in 16th century AD.  the mosque’s gigantic structure makes it very special. It stands 150 feet tall. The steps were made by bricks. Recently it looks a bit distinct. It is mixed with some colors but white & reds are frequently used. There is a huge prayer space where many people say their prayer.

There is a very big Dighi known as Galakata Dighi. This place becomes very calm and relaxed in evening by the whining of birds. Many people come here to chill. This Dighi is filled with natural beauty.
