Mosque City of Bagerhat

In April 2019, CyArk traveled to the historic mosque city of Bagerhat to document three monuments at the UNESCO World Heritage site. Selected in conjunction with the Department of Archaeology of Bangladesh, the field team mapped the Shait Gombuj Masjid or sixty domed mosque, the 9 domed mosque and the single domed Chunakhola mosque. The three sites were documented to provide an accurate baseline of the monuments condition that can be used to analyze the water infiltration going on at the site and plan conservation efforts.Following the field work, CyArk and ICOMOS led a workshop for representatives from the Department of Archaeology, Khulna University the United Nations Development Program and the International Centre for Climate Change and Development in Dhaka. During the workshop discussion were held around climate change impacts to Bangladesh and the need for more research on how the impacts will manifest on the heritage structures.
