Ancient mosque unearthed in Bangladesh

Investigation of remote archaeological site could prove it to be earliest mosque in South Asia.

    In a remote village in northern Bangladesh, an amateur archaeologist has discovered the remains of a mosque believed to be built in the 7th century.

    Villagers initially stumbled on the site where they found ancient treasures and artifacts of Islamic history, including a stone with Quranic scripture, buried underground.

    Further investigation into the findings could prove the site to be the earliest mosque built in South Asia.
