District - Bihar Sharif
NH / SH / Road-
Landmark – Pir Pahari Hill
Circuit – Sufi

About / Importance – Built about 600 years ago this tomb of Ibrahim Baya is located atop the Pir Pahari hill. Ibrahim Malick came to India around 1339 CE and served as a general in Sultan Mohammad Tughlaq's army. Mallick Biya was the title conferred to him by the Sultan for several successful battles and campaigns he and was later appointed the Governor of the district of Bihar. He was also revered as a devout religious saint.

View & Feel – This tomb has a minimal architectural style and emanates more spirituality than royalty, unlike other grand Islamic mausoleums. There is a well laid drivable road which reaches almost the top of the hill for the convenience of the visitors. There seems to be an ancient unexcavated brick structure in the surroundings. The view of the town and the span of green land beneath is indeed a delightful additional attraction of this tomb. The numerous parrots sitting on the slope of the dome make the sight animated with the buzz of life.
