Ulania Zamindar House

The almost dilapidated Chowdhury Bari which is known as Zamindar Bari is situated at the village Ulania under Mehendiganj upazila of Barisal district. Subadar Hanif was the founder of the Ulania Zamindar family and Sheikh Mohammad who was the 5th  upward member of the generation came to Indian Subcontinent from far Persia in search of fortune. He first settled in Ayodhya then in Murshidabad.  Because of the daring activities of the robbers, the area became depopulated. He controlled and eradicated the Dutch pirates Asad Ali, Mague and the European robbers from the coastal areas of Bakerganj district. Thenceforward, the area gradually began to be populated. For the bold action of Subadar Hanif, the subsequent descendants became inducted to the post of Zamindar  A cannon made of iron for the defensive measures was found in this house. The main attraction of this house is the mosque which was built at that time.
