Haji Jamaluddin Masjid is a very simple single storeyed mosque. Artistic design of floors with combination of white and black marble in Persian style is really beautiful but from outside the mosque is very simple. Minarets of this mosque is lofty and designed beautifully. Haji Jamaluddin Mosque was established on 5th of March 1884 and founded by Hafiz Jamaluddin. Now the mosque is under Wakf-estate.
Hafiz Jamaluddin was a leather merchant from Munger or Mungyer, Bihar and in mid 19th century he came to Calcutta (Now Kolkata) along with his family. He settled down in Calcutta (Now Kolkata) permanently and started his business in leather and footwear. Shoe shop near to the mosque is belongs to clan of Jamaluddin in the fourth generation.
During my visit, there was some restoration works was in progress inside the mosque but apart from that, I have noticed there was some new construction works.
