The Chandanpura Masjid is a mosque situated in the old part of Chattagram on the Nabab Siraj ud-Daulah road in Bangladesh. It is one of the famous landmarks in Chittagong and a popular tourist attraction for its impressive architecture. The mosque consists of multiple domes and soaring minarets painted in bright, jovial colors. The mosque is spacious, with slender columns, elongated buttresses and intricately designed balusters.  

Although it was renovated in 1952, little is known about the origin and the history behind the mosque except for the local historians. During a walk from Anderkilla Shahi Jame Masjid to the famous Chawkbazar, be sure to stop at Chandanpura Masjid and marvel the colours and architecture and say a prayer.
