Historical place (Bagerhat)

During the last autumn vacation I got such an opportunity to visit Bagerhat, a great historical place. There I saw the mazar of khan jahan ali- 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 id said that pir khan jahan Ali brought these from Chittagong by floating of water. On the tomb there are inscriptions in Arabic. An inscription says that he died on 25 th 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 visited the satgambuj mosque. It is a big and beautiful building. 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 visitors. There is a big dighi near the satgambuj mosque. 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.
