Contributed By:


Kumradi Darul Ulum Senior Madrasa (কুমড়াদী দারুল উলুম সিনিয়র মাদরাসা), a Madrasa which was built in 1927, by Late Mawlana Mohammad Abdul Aziz. It was the biggest madrasa and Orphanage in Bangladesh. Female and male Muslim students got their Islamic education from this institution. There are two large building might be used for students dormitory. We assume, it was a complete residential Madrasa.

It is located at Kumradi Village of Shibpur Upazila in Narsingdi District. It contains a large area where there are five separate building complex situated in a parallel line. But, four old building has been abandoned in course of time. Only newly built two storied building along with few old building used as Madrasa. Others are just existing as an evidence of time. Some age old people say that, once it was one of the most noisy place in that region, but now we have experienced it as one of the calm & quiet places in this region.

Architectural Layout:

The architectural properties of this Madarsa complex is very simple & regular. Rest of the building of this complex are one storied with plastered rooftop. But, the most front one, just beside the main road is two storied and recent one is as well. The grave yard of the founder of this Madrasa is situated in north-west side the main building. A large pond is situated just behind the grave. There are two main gateway to enter into the madrasa complex, one is in Southern part and another is in north-east side.

Present Condition :

Present condition of these building complex is in very sensitive state. Rest of the buildings are abandoned and has no use for a long time. If proper care is taken, then within a short span of time it could be reused or proper conservation treatment could make this place presentable rather just making it of no use.
