Maizbhandari is a holy place of Bangladesh; the place is located in Fotikchori, Chittagong. Maizbhandar Darbar Sharif has been regarding as a sacred Darbar to the people of Bangladesh for many years. I had a huge curiosity about the place and used to try to visit the place at all times. Fortunately, I have got a chance to visit the holy place during my Sajek Valley tour. On the way, we took a short break to visit the Maizbhandar Darbar. Finally, we visit the historical and well-recognized place.
Maizbhandari is a nice looking Darbar in the country, the main Mazar Sharif is located beside a pond that increases the beauty of Darbar. After reaching the Darbar, we took the prayer of Johar, then we roamed the total Darbar, and the beauty of the holy place stunt me very much. We talked with several pupils of Maizbhandari, they are also the spiritual person who has no worldly interest in life. One thing of the Holy Darbar draws my attention more that is wall script around the Darbar where many scholars’ message is quoted.
