Moulvibazar District

                                মৌলভীবাজার



History
The name of the district, Moulvibazar is derived from two words, moulvi and bazar meaning "Market of the Moulvi". 'Moulvi' is an Islamic honorific title and 'bazar' is the Persian word for market or township. Moulvibazar is named after Syed Moulvi Qudratullah Munsef, the descendant of Syed Shah Mustafa 'Sher-E-Sowar' Chabukmar Baghdadi, an Islamic preacher active during the advent of islam  in the region. It is believed that the name was coined in the middle of 17th century when Moulvi Qudratullah established a small bazaar near his house and local people named it as Moulvibazar. This market was established at riverside of the present Poschim Bazar (West Market), which gradually expanded over the time.
