Khan Jahan Ali’s Tomb:

Khan Jahan Ali's Tomb

Khan Jahan’s Tomb (Bagerhat) stands on a high artificial mound on the northern bank of the so-called Thakurdighi and is surrounded by an outer wall of 67.1 m from east to west and 64.7m from north to south. It is popularly called the dargah complex of khan jahan. The complex consists of the square tomb building of Khan Jahan himself; a sarcophagus of Muhammad Tahir, his diwan; a single-domed mosque and the so-called kitchen. An intermediate wall encircles the tomb of Khan Jahan and the sarcophagus of his diwan.

Mazar Pond and Crocodile:

There is a big pond  in front of the Mazar, the local people call it the Dighi of Khan Jahan Ali. There are some crocodiles in the big pond. They come near fakirs call them and give them something to eat. I saw the Dighi with my own eyes and derived much pleasure

The crocodile  is friend of man for khan Jahan Ali Mazar. It is frankly activities for man.

60 Dome Mosque Bagerhat

Most of the historical place are situated beside the main street. The Majar is  2 kilometers from the Shat Gambuj Mosque (sixty dome mosque) and the mosque is beside of the main road.

Shat Gambuj Masjid, which means a mosque with 60 domes,  was constructed in 1449. Though the mosque has 77 squade domes, traditionally it is called as sixty dome mosque. There is a museum in the mosque area. Foreigners have to pay a small entrance fee of BDT 50 to visit the mosque. The museum beside the mosque is open from 9am to 12pm and from 2pm to 5pm.

Khan Jahan Ali’s tomb is one of the main attractions of Bagerhat. Everyday many visitors come here to pay respects for the holy saint. It is at the south of the main road and about 4km from the main bus stop. The tomb is decorated with colorful clothes. Most of the women pay respects there. There are some other mosques here and there inside the town and most of them are signal domed. If you’ve not a specific interest, they’ll not be interesting.

Near of the dorga there are so many tiny shops but you can’t buy anything without prayer beads and some little trinkets.

There are some little dhabas near of the bus station. You’ll have to think once about food quality before taking.

Two lackluster budget hotels are there in north of bus stand, near of the river. It’s no needed to stay night there cause it takes about two hours to visit here.

Early career:

A quick bowler with a slingy action—not dissimilar to Lasith Malinga’s Rubel can consistently deliver good pace and bounce. His first-class debut arrived for Chittagong Division in 2007, where he picked up match figures of 1/137 against Khulna Division. After a string of good performances in the National Cricket League , he was selected to play for the Bangladesh Under 19 teams , and soon after, the Bangladesh A Team.

International career:

Rubel was named in the ODI squad for the tri-series with Sri-lanka and Zimbabwe, and made his debut in the third game of the round-robin stage, a game Bangladesh needed to win to progress to the final. Rubel cleaned up the middle-order and tail with a 4 wicket haul in just 5.3 overs. He also played in the tri-series final, where he had a poor end to the game, but retained his place for the three ODI series against Zimbabwe soon after. More good performances led to him being named in the Test squad to face the West Indies for the first time. He made his debut at Arnos Vale , and took three wickets in West Indies’ 1st innings, and also formed a good 10th wicket partnership with Sahadate Hassan in Bangladesh’s 1st innings.

In Novamber-2011, Pakistan toured Bangladesh for three ODIs and two Tests. Pakistan won the first Test by an innings, and Bangladesh took just five wickets in the match. At times Hossain reached speeds of 145 kilometres per hour (90 mph) but failed to take a wicket. On the third day, he injured his right shoulder while diving in the field.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board found the six-team BPL in 2012, a twenty20 tournament to be held in February that year. An auction was held for teams to buy players, and Samuels was bought by the Sylhet Royal for $70,000
