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 years age.
