Chandrapur  Mosque stands on a hillock in Rajnagar area. This medieval mosque is concealed from public view by trees, plants and bushes. It was found in the fateful year of 1992 when the Babri Maszid was destroyed  at Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh. The mosque was built by the  commander in chief of Mughal army when they invaded Tripura in the year 1618 during the reign of king Yashodhar Manikya.

The mosque over looks the plains of Bangladesh and Tripura from a hillock. It was restored by an initiative of the state government and a ‘Solidarity Fair’ was held on 6th December the day 'Babri Maszid' was destroyed.
