The largest Mosque in Kolkata.

In a bright day light condition of city kolkata, india. There was snap which is taken from above t show city business and working mode. The color of frame candid and all are very vibrant. A great city scape.

This is top view of my city kolkata, India. A busy street with full of chaos, cars, people, tram and lots of moments. From above it is a great point of view to the frame with full of color and candidness. The frame with a little symmetry about diagonal makes a great sense.

Inside the Nakhoda Masjid (mosque), which provides peace from the hectic city streets and shelter from the scorching heat.

Eid Mubarak or Blessed Eid is a traditional Muslim greeting reserved for use on the festivals of Eid ul-Adha and Eid ul-Fitr. Eid means "Celebration" and refers to the occasion itself, and Mubarak means "blessed"; for example: performing the Eid prayer. The celebration continues until the end of the day for Eid al-Fitr and continues a further three days for Eid al-Adha. However, in the social sense people usually celebrate Eid al-Fitr after Ramadan and Eid-al-Adha in the month of Dhul Haj (12th and Final Islamic month), greetings like "Eid Mubarak". This exchange of greetings is a cultural tradition and not part of any religious obligation. The two Little children celebrate their great festival with full of joy, love and fun. The face with graceful smile proves all.

This image portraying life was taken in Kolkata, or previously named Calcutta in India.

Mental peace is what we need in this modern world where violence, conflict and hostility have taken over; we all crave for that break from this dull chaos. Born and brought up in Kolkata, I have visited lots of places of photographic interests in this city. This time I have chosen the famous age old Nakhoda Mosque in Kolkata, located in the Chitpur area in the central Kolkata. A man seated there and read Quran, alone in that huge wide floor of the mosque. The light makes the drama here.

This is a picture of three friends, I took this picture inside of the famous Nakhoda Mosque in Kolkata few days ago at the time of Ramadan month. They are playing inside the mosque on a warm summer noon. The light and shadow creates a special ambiance here.

Few years ago I took this picture inside of the famous Nakhoda Mosque in Kolkata. A man was reading Quran in a peaceful atmosphere and the beautiful light and shade condition creates a lovely ambiance.

I took this picture in a market place in front of Nakhoda Masque. Here is a tea store and behind the store, the four lady mannequins with colorful cloths. Five men and the four lady, so the title of this picture five is to four.

I took this picture last year inside of the famous Nakhoda Mosque, during the Ramadan month. The lovely ambiance, red wall and the yellow t shirt of the boy look stunning. The pattern of the stairs and the beautiful architecture ad more drama here. The boy is the main subject here.

During the Ramadan month, I took this picture in Nakhoda Mosque at Kolkata few months ago. At the time of namaj(prayer), I just tried to clicked that happy moment when A young mother and her son were smiling. The expression of both mother and son are really beautiful to watch.

Hayati kehebatan & keunggulan pemimpin agung sepanjang zaman ini!"

اللهم صل على سيدنا محمد وعلى آله وصحبه أجمعين


Al-Quran | Ar-Ra'd | Ayat 2:


"Allah is He who raised the heavens without any pillars that ye can see; is firmly established on the Throne (of authority); He has subjected the sun and the moon (to His Law)! Each one runs (its course) for a term appointed. He doth regulate all affairs, explaining the Signs In detail, that ye may believe with certainty In the meeting with your Lord."


"Allah jualah yang menjadikan langit terangkat tinggi dengan tiada bertiang sebagaimana yang kamu melihatnya, kemudian Ia bersemayam di atas Arasy; dan Ia memudahkan matahari dan bulan (untuk faedah makhluk-makhlukNya) tiap-tiap satu dari keduanya beredar untuk suatu masa yang telah ditetapkan. Allah jualah yang mentadbirkan segala urusan; ia menerangkan tanda-tanda kekuasaannya satu-persatu, supaya kamu yakin kepada pertemuan Tuhan kamu (untuk menerima balasan)."

Zakaria Street situated near Mahatma Gandhi Road in Kolkata is a commercial hub & home to the largest mosque in Kolkata “Nakhoda Masjid”. Although this masjid has a charm of its own, the street is where the life is, on the month of Ramadan. It was ironic to find the food stalls are run by small families, it won’t be a full trip of this place if you haven’t crossed a corner without getting the smell of Ittars. This is a place where people from far off come to intake the feel of the living street
