A committee was formed on Sunday to preserve the archaeological heritage and relics of historic Garhjaripa in Sreebardi upazila of Sherpur.

The place was the capital of Sherpur at the beginning of Muslim rule in the area. 

Muslim ruler Majlish Khan Humayun occupied Garhjaripa in 1491.

Numerous archeological relics of the area include Baraduari Mosque, Kalidaha Sagar, Chand Saudagar's Dinghy, and Jarip Shah's shrine.

As the archaeological heritage and relics of Garhjaripa are on the edge of ruin, the government has stepped forward to preserve them.

A committee was formed with Sreebardi Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) as its head. 

It will publish a booklet on the history of Garhjaripa and collect archeological relics from the locals, said UNO Nilufa Aktar.

"We will also recommend the Department of Archaeology to set up a museum at Garhjaripa."
