There is a story about the naming of the mosque in Mai Saheba Jame. At that time, Tinani, the zamindar of Sherpur, invited the zamindar of Muktagasa.
The landowner of Muktagasa wants someplace in Sherpur in his badaul. As a result, the zamindar of Sherpur decided to give the mosque’s place to the zamindar of Muktagasa and ordered the destruction of the house used by the elephant to lift the existing Treasury.
