My Visit To A Place of Historical Interest (Bagerhat)

Man is not satisfied with what he has seen and known. He wants to see more and know more. He wants to get flavour of the historical places of his country. Whenever I get an opportunity, I visit a place of historical interest. During the last autumn vacation. I got such an opportunity to visit Bagerhat, a great historical place.

Bagerhat is a great historical place. Hazrat Khan Jahan Ali founded this town. He was a just and a great saint of the fifteen century. At the time of his reign Bagerhat was a part of the Sunderbans. He cleared the forest and made it habitable. He named it Khalifabad. He erected many official buildings to run his administration. He also built many mosques and dug tanks. The buildings erected by him are now all in ruins. When I saw these historical buildings, my joys knew no bounds.

The Mazar of Khan Jahan Ali is a fine one storeyed building. It has a beautiful dome. Hazrat Khan Jahan Ali was buried there. The tomb is made of cut out stones. It cannot be accurately said where from these were brought. It is said that Pir Khan Jahan Ali brought these from Chittagong by floating on water. On the tomb there are inscriptions in Arabic. An inscription says that he died on 25th October, 1459. There is a small mosque nearby. A close associate of Khan Jahan Ali was buried outside the tomb. On the night of the full moon of the month of Chaitra a big fair is held beside the Mazar. Many people attend the fair.

There is a big tank in front of the Mazar. The local people call it the Dighi of Khan Jahan Ali. There are some crocodiles in this big tank. They come near when the Fakirs call them and give them something to eat. I saw the Dighi with my own eyes and derived much pleasure.

I also visited the Satgambuj Mosque. It is a big and beautifull building. It is still in good condition. It stands on sixty stone pillars with its seventy seven domes. They are made of stones. The mosque is beautifully decorated. It is said that it was used as a mosque by Pir Khan Jahan. The mosque has great attraction for the tourists and the visitors.

There is a big dighi near the Satgambuj Msoque. This dighi is called the Ghora Dighi. It is said that a horse was made to run before digging the Dighi. The horse ran straight and stood covering a certain distance. That distance was accepted as the length of the Dighi. That is why the Dighi is called Ghora Dighi. I visited this Dighi and came to know many things about the social work of Khan Jahan Ali.

Bagerhat is really a place of historical interest. I spent eight hours there and saw many historical things and enjoyed myself. I left Bagerhat but the memory still haunts my mind.
