Bamarni is a town located to the north of Duhok in Iraqi Kurdistan.

Bamarni was once home to prominent Naqshbandi Sufi Sheikhs, most notably Sheikh Ghiathadeen Naqshabandi. They were known for their piety and humbleness and had followers all around Iraq, Turkey, Iran, and in general the Middle East. Although it was a small village, Bamarni was a center for the Bahdinan region and the Takkiyah(khanqah} of the Sheikhs was visited by many followers and people.
