Military surgeon James Atkinson wrote the text that accompanied Charles D'Oyly's images in the book 'Antiquities of Dacca'. He said of this mosque in Dhaka: "Though highly deserving of the attentions of the painter, the architect, and the man of taste, nothing is particularly known on the subject of its history. It is situated on the road leading from Dacca to Tungy, and is wildly overgrown with various foliage, and roots rambling across it in every romantic direction, and clinging to its domes and arches. The view is taken from the eastward."
