There are a great number of mosques in the city of Dhaka, also known as the "city of mosques". The majority of the people in Bangladesh are Muslims. The concrete structure in this photo is also a mosque, although it has little history. It is a national mosque called Baitul Mukarram. It may be unthinkable in Western society that the state is running a religious institution.

This huge mosque can hold as many as 40,000 people and is said to be the tenth largest mosque in the world. When I stood on the footbridge and looked at the entrance, more and more visitors were being swallowed up, just like the rumor.
