A visit to a place of historical interest Inroduction: Man is curious (c) to see the unseen, to know the unknown and to explore the unexplored (5). So as a human being, I also have a keen () interest to see and know the historical places.

Occassion: During the last winter vacation (), I got a chance to visit Bagerhat which is a well-known (a) historical place. I went there with my father. We reached the Mazar of Khan Jahan Ali at noon.

Hazrat Khan Jahan Ali was buried (ra) there. The tomb (4) is made of stones. On the tomb there are writings in Arabic that he died on 25 October, 1459. There is a beautiful mosque near the Mazar. There is a big tank (T) in front of the Mazar. There are some crocodiles (f) in the tank. They come near when the Fakirs call and give them something to eat. I enjoyed all these sights very much.

Other sights: After we had visited the Mazar we went to see the Shatgambuj Mosque. It is a very large and beautiful building. I was greatly impressed by this splendid mosque. Beside the Mosque there is a big Dighi. This is called the 'Ghora Dighi. There is a saying that before digging () the Dighi, a horse was made to run a certain (f) distance and that distance was accepted as the length of the Dighi. I visited the Dighi and the nearby areas. I also came to know a lot about the social service of Khan Jahan Ali.

Conclusion: Bagerhat is really a beautiful place of historical interest. I spent only a few hours there. I learnt many things from this visit. I feel really fortunate (s) to visit such a place. The
