Welcome to Biswanath Online, the official website. Biswanath is situated in Sylhet, Bangladesh. After the Conquest of Gour in 1303, three disciples of Shah Jalal; Shah Kalu, Shah Kabir and Shah Chand, migrated to modern-day Bishwanath. The British Raj granted zamindari to Baburam Jivan Ray and his son, Bishwanath Ray Choudhury. They established the Bishwanath Bazaar, named after the latter, which gradually expanded.
