Kajir Dewry, Chattogram

As the Kazir Dewri area guide suggests, Kazir Dewri, a neighborhood in Chattogram City, has a past with people known as Kazi or Judge of the Court of Arbitration. Years ago, they used to be the judges to help general people reconcile on occasions of conflicts. They would also give sentences to criminals and have them executed in order to restore justice in society.

Over time, their reputation grew, and soon, the area became known as Kazir Dewri. The word Dewri means gate, inside which the court of the Kazi was set up. This is a tale of centuries ago, probably before the Mughals came to Bengal. Later, the name Kazir Dewri was found in British documents, too.

Although their traditional job has not been in action for ages, the descendants of the Kazi family still live in Chattogram. Even though their popularity declined as time went by, the name of the area indicates the fame and significance of the Kazis’ position in the community. To date, they are fondly remembered by the locals who learned about them from their ancestors.

Fast forward to the present, Kazir Dewri is a well-developed area in the core of Chattogram City. Everyone living here enjoys the perfect urban life with every facility accessible and available to them. The urbanization of the place will give you a taste of city life, which also explains why the population is increasing day by day. The multistoried buildings and apartments attract many families to settle their lives here.

A remarkable part of this once-quiet neighborhood is its Stadiumpara. The name of the stadium is MA Aziz Stadium where local teams play football and cricket. The country’s national football team also uses the multi-purpose stadium occasionally.

The Mukta Mancha, situated at the center of Stadiumpara, is the main attraction of the locals. Over the years, it has become popular for its food stalls offering everything from tea to seafood to different cuisines. If you travel around to see the CRB area, don’t forget to stop by here and savor your favorite food!
