Model Answer:
I want to see the world, understand the similarities and differences of various places and learn their history. And to do that, I have started with my own country. I want to visit the most important places in my country, and then explore the rest of the world over time. Thank you, sir/madam, very much for the opportunity and time to let me talk about a place with historical interest where I have been to.

A couple of years ago, I visited Bagerhat, a historical district in Bangladesh, and it was a memorable trip for me. I stayed in this famous place for three days and visited Shait Gambuj Moshjid (Sixty Dome Mosque), which carries both historical prominence and spiritual importance. 

Shait Gambuj Moshjid has quite an interesting and unique structural design, and it looks so beautiful. It stands on sixty stone pillars, and I believe this is how it has got its name. The surrounding area is stunningly beautiful. Due to its historical importance, religious significance and beautiful design, it attracts a huge number of visitors each year. When I visited this place, I witnessed a large influx of tourists. I could not be sure which one was more important in attracting so many visitors - its structural design or the pious intention of visitors! 

Historically speaking, during the 15th century, a Muslim colony was founded in the mangrove forest of the Sundarbans, near the coast in the Bagerhat District by a saint-General, named Khan Jahan Ali. The construction of this mosque was started in 1442, and it was completed in 1459. It was an icon of that era and still stands to represent the glorious history of the Muslim colony in the area. It is one of the most significant structures of that time and represents stunning archaeological beauty - a signature of the 15th century.
