Shrine of Hazrat Shah Jalal (R)

The Mazar (Shrine) of Hazrat Shah Jalal (R) is 3 kilometres away from the Circuit House of Sylhet town. Hazrat Shah Jalal (R) was known as the chief of all saints and historic Sufi and Pir (spiritual guide) in the subcontinent. His full name is Shaikh Jalaluddin. He spread Islam in Sylhet region.  Hazrat Shah Jalal (R) with his 360 companions came to Sylhet after knowing the happening that Raja Gaur Govinda inflicted oppression on Sheikh Burhanuddin, the first Muslim in Sylhet. This famous spiritual saint started preaching Islam and started living permanently in Sylhet. He was buried there after his death. This Mazar has been named after his name.  Immediately after the main gate there is a mosque and behind it there is a one-domed building on a hillock. Around the Mazar there are countless Jalali pigeons and in the pond there are large Gajar fish (Giant Snakehead). Apart from that a pair of wooden sandals, a sword and a few utensils which are preserved here are considered as his mementoes.
