Shrine of Hazrat Shah Paran (R)

Hazrat Shah Paran (R) was a great Sufi who followed the religious way of Suhrawardia and Jalaladia. It is learnt that he is the nephew of Hazrat Shah Jalal (R) and was born in Yemen. And this Mazar (Shrine) has been named after his name. He made a Khanka (a saint’s house) at Khadim Nagar in Dakshingachh Pargana about 7 kilometres away from Sylhet and started his spiritual practice there. His death anniversary with feast is held on Arabic Robiul Awal 4, 5, and 6 every year. His Mazar is made of brick and is surrounded by wall on high hillocks. On the North of the Mazar there is an old tree of the name of ‘Ashagachh’ (a tree of hope) and there is an ancient mosque beside the Mazar.
