*Fac Simile of an Inscription in the Great Kuttra; by James Atkinson, 1825* (BL) [*Atkinson 1825*]

"This inscription is written in Persian on the walls of the Bara (Great) Katra in Dhaka.  It explains that Abu'l-Qasim
Tabataba Shuja Husayni Al-Simmani erected the building and the 22 adjoining shops.  The profits from these shops would
to go towards the cost of repairing the Bara Katra and also provide either free shelter or a caravanserai for travellers and
merchants.  These conditions were not to be violated or punishment would be forthcoming on the Day of Judgement.  The
inscription was written in 1055 An Hegira (1645AD) by Su'd al-Din Muhammad Shirazi."
