I am taking photographs related with different types of religious Faith for last two years. I’ve spend a considerable time on this Mazar. Later I research on this place and the mazar culture. I’ve also got some information from this website
Also I talked with the local peoples and the Mazar authority. I talked with my teachers too, this place is so important , it influence the cultural and political situation of Sylhet , as I am living near the Hazrat Sahjalal (Rd) mazar I observed these activities for a long time and think that it could be a good topic for photo story.
