Legend has it that about 600 years ago, 360 Auliyas from Iraq spread to different parts of the world to propagate Islam. The historic Shahi Masjid was built under Sufi Hazrat Shah Jamal (R).

Jamalpur Shahi Masjid was buried in the ground for a long time. Later, in 1960 Haqqani Qutubuddin, the deputy administrator of Gaibandha tried to search the mosque but failed.
Banyan trees on the mosque site collapsed in a sudden storm, making the mosque visible to the locals. That is why many people refer to it as the Gayabi Mosque. There is a giant Dighi in front of the mosque, and there is much folklore surrounding the Dighi.
The lower wall of Jamalpur Shahi Masjid is 72 inches thick, and the upper wall is 56 inches thick. There was an opportunity to offer prayers in only 2 queues inside the mosque, so the mosque was expanded and renovated, keeping in place the main infrastructure.
At present, about 500-700 Muslims can pray together at this two-storeyed Shahi Mosque.
