“Once upon it was shrine but people convert it into a business place!”
Review of Shahjalal Dorgha

Shahjalal Dorgha
Ranked #4 of 18 things to do in Sylhet City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 March 2018

This is the famous holiest place for which Sylhet is famous for! You would find a sense of peace and tranquility inside your heart when you are inside and in pray but sadly the people has made it a place of big business! There are hundreds of money collection traps - most of which are not even supported by the instruction of Islam. I would suggest just to go there - pray at the graves and in the mosque. Remember, dead ones never need or seek your money. So spend wisely.

A must visit place in Sylhet. It is a crowded place. I found it was open from early morning to midnight. There are several reasonable hotels in this area for staying. Be careful while shopping, a good bargain would help.
