C̲h̲ihríq
___________________
Pronunciation: cheh-reek
___________________
A fortress in ád̲h̲arbáyján, northeastern Iran, where the Báb was imprisoned for almost all of the last two years of His life. Because He was more strictly confined there than He had been in Máh-Kú, the Báb named C̲h̲ihríq 'Jabal-i-S̲h̲adíd' (the Grievous Mountain). Many of His writings were revealed in C̲h̲ihríq, including the Arabic Bayán and His Tablet to Ḥájí Mírzá Áqásí. One of the purposes of the Conference of Badas̲h̲t was to find a way to free the Báb from His imprisonment in C̲h̲ihríq.
[BD 55]
___________________
Fortress to which the Báb was transferred about April 10, 1848; designated by Him Jabab-i-S̲h̲adíd, the Grievous mountain.
