Sherpur of Bogra is known as the “Delhi of North Bengal”. The ancient relics of Sherpur is almost on the verge of being lost. Buddhist and Hindu days are almost erased. The memory of the Muslim rule is almost on its wayout. One of the famous memorial of the Muslim rule is the famous Kherua Masjid. Ancient Tola and Bibi Masjid are almost in ruins. Revolutionary Shahid Shah Turkhan’s memorial grave (mausoleum) was built here. In the year 1538, Pathan Sher Shah defeated Mughal emperor Humyun and snatched the throne of Delhi. Bengal was a province under Delhi at that time. For the convenience of administration Bengal was divided into 24 Shik, Sherpur being one. Shikdar was the administrator over a Shik. Sherpur took the name from Sher Shah. Between 1538 and 1556, Sherpur had impressive development. A fort and several buildings were built.
