Hatir Pool, Sarail

Hatir Pool is located on the left hand side of the road which is about one hundred yards away on the east from Bariura Bus Stand of Sarail upazila adjacent to the Dhaka-Sylhet High Way. Recently the Bangladesh Archeological Department has taken steps to reform and preserve the bridge. Dewan Shahbaz Ali after obtaining his dewani (office of a finance minister) of Sarail, built the present Kachhari and while building the present Kachari he built the road from Sarail to Shahbazpur in 1650 for communication from home to Shahbazpur. This bridge is located over the road. It is said the Dewans moved on elephants’ back and took rest with elephants at the foot of the bridge that is why it is called the Hatir Pool (Elephant Bridge).  At present the local people call that abandoned road Jangal.
