The entrance fee of 200 taka for foreigners is the most expensive yet in BD. Cattycorner from the official entrance gate is an open, unguarded gate for townsfolk. It's through this gate you can also visit two additional forest mosques. I'm not necessarily advocating using this gate to avoid paying, but merely mentioning it. If you choose to enter through the gate, you won't be able to enter the rather mundane museum on the grounds. No other sites charge admission, though they'll try to shake you down for donations at Ali's tomb. Bus fare from Khulna (or Mongla) is around 50 taka. Be sure to ask the driver to drop you off at the first mosque, otherwise you'll have to backtrack about 4 km from the main bus stop in the town of Bagerhat.
