Bamarni (Arabic: بامرني‎‎) is a village located to the north of Duhok in Iraq.

History[edit]

Bamarni, Bamêrnî or Bamernê 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 across the Middle East.

Although it was a small village, Bamarni was a center for the Bahdinan region and the Takkiyah (khanqah) was visited by many followers. Coordinates: 37°07′N 43°016′E / 37.117°N 43.267°E / 37.117; 43.267
