Majar of Ulugh Khan Jahan Ali: culture of 15th century

Beauty of muslim culture of 15th century is still present here.

The holy grave of the saint Khan Jahan Ali is in Bagerhat, many wonders are around it.

An amazing tour is possible in Bagerhat of Bangladesh to see not only an adventurous graveyard but also some historical but beautiful places. You can find here two of the oldest mosques, the Shat Gambuj Mosque and the one Gambuj Mosque.

In 1442 a muslim saint Ulugh Khan Jahan Ali came in Khalifabad (present Bagerhat) to spread the religion Islam. He used to live on the bank of a river and used to use crocodiles for good works. After his death there was situated a majar around his grave and the river died. But the crocodiles are still there from the time of his death.

Some of the crocodiles of the majar are thousands year old and they does not eat human body without hen and duck. So people can touch them truely without danger and people believe that the crocodiles can make any wish true. I became astonished after touching a crocodile for the first time.

Where the saint is sleeping down there are some strange manners also. The whole majar is decorated in 15th century and the design of former muslim culture is wonderful! The majar is standing here which is made of burn mud from 15th century.

Around the majar there seems like a fair. you can buy things like flute, cap etc. The road transport system is quiet good, available and easy so people come here everyday from different places. You can take an opportunity like me to see the signature of former culture at the majar of Khan Jahan Ali in Bagerhat.

The wind of nearby sea, the trees around a dead river site and the wonders of the majar can’t be neglected by you. Every angle of the environment will attract your sight.

Bagerhat: little town near the sea where history of 600 years is hidden

Bagerhat is one of the most popular historical towns of Bangladesh which is in Khulna division.

In 15th century a saint named Khan Jahan Ali came here in Khalifabad (present Bagerhat). He constructed a muslim colony and for this he made mosques and many more. It is the reason for why people visit there. Among some villages and so many natural views you can see the wonderful places too.

It is not only near to a sea port named Mongla but also directly connected with the divisional city, Khulna.

Most of the historical places are situated beside the main street. The Majar is 2 kilometers from the Shat Gambuj Mosque (Sixty Dome Mosque) and the mosque is beside of the main road.

Shat Gambuj Masjid, which means a mosque with 60 domes, was constructed in 1449. Though the mosque has 77 squade domes, traditionally it is called as sixty dome mosque. There is a museum in the mosque area. Foreigners have to pay a small entrance fee of BDT 50 to visit the mosque. The museum beside the mosque is open from 9am to 12pm and from 2pm to 5pm.

Khan Jahan Ali’s tomb is one of the main attractions of Bagerhat. Everyday many visitors come here to pay respects for the holy saint. It is at the south of the main road and about 4km from the main bus stop. The tomb is decorated with colorful clothes. Most of the women pay respects there. There are some other mosques here and there inside the town and most of them are single domed. If you’ve not a specific interest, they’ll not be interesting.

Near of the dorga there are so many tiny shops but you can’t buy anything without prayer beads and some little trinkets.

There are some little dhabas near of the bus station. You’ll have to think once about food quality before taking.

Two lackluster budget hotels are there in north of bus stand, near of the river. It’s no needed to stay night there cause it takes about two hours to visit here.
