The journey to Sylhet city can start from this place. The entrance to the shrine is on the left side, a little north of Chauhatta, spreading Zindabazar to the north from the city court point. The main shrine complex is just a short walk from here. Dargah Mosque will be seen first. The mosque is now modern and was first built in 1400 AD.
There is a staircase leading to the shrine next to the mosque. Upstairs, one has to enter the shrine through a domed hall. This is the clock tower just west of the house. The three tombs on the east side of the courtyard of the clock tower are those of three close associates of Hazrat Shahjalal. The small grilled house on the south side of it is the shrine of Hazrat Shahjalal. He has spent twenty-three years of his life meditating in this two feet wide shrine.
As soon as you enter through the northern entrance of Chilla Khana, you will see the tomb of Hazrat Shahjalal (ra) built of high bricks. This shrine was built in 1859 AD. Next to it is the tomb of Shahzad Ali, the king of Yemen, and the tomb of Muktalib Khan Wazir, the ruler of Sylhet in 1410 AD. He defeated the Hindu king Gaur Govinda and started propagating Islam in the region. At that time he came to this country from the city of Kunya in Turkey with 313 disciples.
He stayed here after winning many battles. He died in 1340 AD. The whole shrine complex of Hazrat Shahjalal is a place worth visiting. The whole area resounds with the sound of the carrot fish and the wings of hundreds of jalali pigeons. Swords, plates, bowls, etc. used by Hazrat Shahjalal (ra) are still preserved inside the shrine complex. The newly constructed arch of the shrine complex is also quite interesting.
Hazrat Shahparan was the nephew of Hazrat Shahjalal. He was also a spiritual man. The tomb of this great man is at Khadimpara in Dakshinagache, about 10 km east of the city. In the shade of a huge banyan tree, one has to climb the stairs to reach the shrine. Every day thousands of devotees walk around the entire shrine area. Next to the shrine is a three-domed mosque built in Mughal architecture.
Leaving the Lakatura tea garden, the beautiful tea garden is located on the left hand side of the airport. It is said to be the oldest tea garden in Bangladesh. The tea garden was established in 1854 by Mr. Hudson. The fun of wandering around the Malnichhara tea garden is different. With permission, the garden can be visited with the help of an employee of the tea garden. There is also an orange orchard in the Malnichhara tea garden.
A short distance from Malnichhara, beyond the Cadet College, on the right hand side, on a hilly hill, is the travel center of the Bangladesh Tourism Corporation. The natural beauty of the distant mountains can be enjoyed by sitting in this place and this wonderful place for walking. Besides, the Sylhet Motel of Bangladesh Tourism Corporation is here.
Kinbridge at a distance of 25-30 rupees rickshaw fare from the tomb of Hazrat Shahjalal. It is also known as Surmabridge. It was built in 1936. It is named after the then English Governor Michael Keane. At 1150 feet long and 16 feet wide, the bridge is curved like a bow. In 1971, the Pak invaders blew up part of the bridge. Later in 1986, the destroyed part was rebuilt with the funding of Bangladesh Railway.
When you look down from Kinbridge, you see a clock. Located at Chandnighat next to the bridge, the clock tower still stands as a witness to history. It is known that Ali Amjad Khan, the famous zamindar of Prithvimpasha, was fascinated by the clock tower built by Shahjadi Jahanara at Chandneech in Delhi. So he built a similar clock tower near Chandnighat on the banks of Surma Nudi. That is why everyone knows it as Ali Amjads house.
