Shrine of Hazrat Bayazid Bostami


The shrine of this famous saint is situated in
Chittagong. This great priest came to Chittagong in 10th Century to
spread the religion of Islam. You can also visit
the ancient rare variety of Turtles in the Dighi in the Shrine premises. This
shrine attracts a large number of visitors and pilgrims. At its base is a
large tank with several hundred tortoises.
Tradition has it that these animals are the
descendants of the evil spirits (genii) who were cast into this shape because
they incurred the wrath of the great saint who visited the place about 1100
