About Moulvibazar Districts



Maulvi Bazar (Bengali: মৌলভীবাজার জেলা Moulvibazar Zila) is a district of Sylhet Division in North-EasternBangladesh.


The Welcome Square of Moulvi Bazar District besides Dhaka-Sylhethighway

Moulvi Bazar is in Sylhet, a district to the North-East of Bangladesh. It is 2,707 km² in area, and has a population of 1.38 million. It is situated between 24.10 degree 24.35 degree north latitude and between 90.35 degree and 91.20-degree east longitude. It is surrounded by Sylhet District in the north, Habiganj District in the west and Indian States ofAssam and Tripura in the east and south respectively.[citation needed]

The main rivers of the district are the Manu, the Dholoi and the Juri which flow from India. Every year during the rainy season, when there is excessive rainfall in India, the surplus water flows through these rivers and causes floods in low-lying parts of Moulvibazar (for example, the villages of Balikhandi and Shampashi on the northern side of the river Manu).[citation needed] Unless the rivers are properly dredged the floods can be devastating.[citation needed]

In the last few years Moulvibazar has had a muti-million dollar flood defence system built, which is the only one like it in the whole country.[citation needed]

Upazila (Subdivisions)

Maulvi Bazar is made up of 7 subdivisions or upazilas. They are:

  • Moulvibazar Sadar

There are 92 tea gardens in this district that has made it one of the most beautiful places in Bangladesh.


Islam was brought to the area hundreds of years ago by the famous Muslim Saint, Hazrat Shah Jalal (RA). The Shrine of Hazrat Shah Mustafa (RA) a companion of the greatest saint Hazrat Shah Jalal (RA) is located in Moulvibazar town. Originally, with the advent of a saint Hazrat, Syed Shah Mustafa Sher-E-Sowar Chabukmar Baghdadi (RA) for preaching Islam, Moulvibazar became famous. Moulvibazar got its name from one of the descendents of Hazrat Shah Mustafa,who was preaching there as a maulavi there

In the year 1882, it was declared a sub-division under the name of "South Sylhet". Later the Sub-division was renamed, during the Pakistan occupation of the region, as Moulvibazar. Moulvibazar was liberated on December 6 1971 and the then Pakistani administration surrendered to the joint forces of the Indian Army.
