Turtles of Bayezid Bostami shrine in Chittagong


At the Bayezid Bostami Shrine in Chittagong of Bangladesh, one of the main attraction is its turtles Every day, hundreds of followers of all religions, queue to seek blessings from these rare and near extinct Boon Granter turtles Visitors believe that by feeding them, their wishes woul d be granted by “the genie embodiments”. That is why devotees feed these turtles regularly I heard that one is benefited by feeding the turtles. That’s why I came here. I came from Dhaka here knowing that my kid will get to see and enjoy the presence of these rare turtle These turtles feed on eggs, banana or breads. But their favourite is mutton or beef lungs These have survived for hundreds of years on the food given by the visitors Shrine caretaker: they are very old. Around 1200 years old Legend says that they are tamed genies People feed them out of spiritual respect They believe that these turtles can fulfil their wishes Usually they like animal lungs, parata– things that people eat Every year during the rainy season, they climb up the banks of the pond to lay eggs The eggs hatch in the months of June and July. The baby turtles then go back to the pond Although peoples’ curiosity to see the Bostami turtles has increase, their habitat is facing threats from urbanisation Since 1987, several residential buildings have come up around this area–putting pressure on the pond Every year the number of turtle babies is decreasing

    হাইরে মানুষ সর্ণ রেখে কয়লা নিয়ে টানাটানি।।।

    যিনি এই পৃথিবীর সব কিছুর মালিক. বিপদে তাকে বিশ্বাস ও অনুসরণ না করে, কচ্ছপ এর মত একটা প্রাণী কে অনুসরণ করতেছে।।।

    এটাকেই শিরক বলে & শিরককারীকে আল্লাহ্‌ কখনই ক্ষমা করবেন না।।
