Bangladesh is home to the fourth largest Muslim population of the world. Numbers of mosques are proportionately dense in relation to the city's population and the capital. The capital, Dhaka, is called the city of mosques. Spiritual buildings are an integral part of the architectural character of Dhaka. It was a flamboyant city during the Mughal era. The architecture of Mughal Dhaka made profound contributions to the history of Islamic architecture. Mughal religious monuments are significant for combining spirituality with identity. Now their identities are struggling with the growth of Urbanization. This study attempts to analyze Mughal spiritual buildings at Sat Masjid Road in Dhaka to protect them from decay and to ensure the restoration of redeemed spirituality.
