At a distance of 5 km from Jamnagar Railway Station, the Bohra Hajira is a beautiful mausoleum, located in Nageshwar locality of Jamnagar in Gujarat. Also known as Mazar E Badri, it is one of the holiest of its kinds in entire Gujarat and among the important religious places to visit in Jamnagar.
Bohra Hajira is the resting places of Mota Bawa, a Muslim saint. The dargah of the Dawoodi Bohra community was built by Jam Rawal in 1540 CE. This is a magnificent structure on the banks of the Rangmati and Nagmati Rivers. It is a renowned place of pilgrimage and is visited by devout Dawoodi Bohras from all over the world to pay their respects, make a wish or take a vow.
Made out of white marble, the mausoleum that represents the Saracenic style of architecture has intricate carvings. The surroundings of the mosque are infused with an air of serenity and calm in the midst of bustling traffic and chaos all around. The time when the construction of this historical monument took place, it was the boarding place for the people who want to cross the Nagmati or Rangmati rivers by boat. But, the rivers have almost dried up now and dried river banks in proximity to the Bohra Hajira play host to Hindu fairs during the holy month of Shravana. One can also visit Saifee Tower situated nearby.
One must keep in mind that it is necessary to obtain prior permission from the manager to visit the mausoleum.
