Sajek

Reviewed By MD GOLAM R - Comilla, Bangladesh

Touring the mountain's high street is very romantic. Sunrise and sunset scenes are very beautiful. If someone want to see Sajek as Sajek, then he/she must see it in Dawn/early in the morning. Actually it's the wonderful creation of ALLAH/GOD.

Ratargul Swamp Forest

Reviewed By Rene S

It's a beautiful swamp forest. Big. U have to walk in mud a distance which is also fun. U have hire small boats. The rate is fixed, u have to confirm. It takes 1 to 2 hr to get back. There is a watch tower in the middle. Best thing is engine boats are not allowed, so it is quiet out there. Undisturbed wildlife u have to explore. I was happy.

Jatiyo Sriti Shoudho (National Martyrs' Memorial)

Reviewed By zamanwho - Dhaka City, Bangladesh

The National Martyrs' Monument or Jatiyo Sriti Shoudho in Bengali is located at Savar, an industrial suburb about 35 Km northwest of Dhaka. The monument stands as an iconic structure, encapsulating the nation's gratitude toward the martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the Independence. In December every year, thus, the National Martyrs' Monument becomes the epicentre of the nation's collective rituals in celebrating nationhood. The visitor is presented with a strong axial visual connection to the monument from the main northern entrance. The tortuous path to the National Monument appears to symbolise the nation's difficult path to independence. As much as it tells the story of Bangladesh's journey to independence, the National Martyrs' Monument narrates a beautifully choreographed architectural story. This is an amazing place for the locals and tourists to observe and to remember and respect the great heroism and sacrifice of the freedom fighters.

Shait-Gumbad Mosque

Sixty Domes Mosque was built in 1454 and is the largest brick mosque of Bangladesh.

Reviewed By Fazal Mahmud R - Dhaka City, Bangladesh

This 'world heritage' is situated at Bagerhat District and can easily be accessed from Khulna City. The compound is beautiful, filled with trees and flowers; very peaceful. The compound has a small museum which is currently under renovation, so access is temporarily restricted. Just behind the mosque, there is a wonderful lake. Seat for a while and relax.The compound had clean restrooms for both Male & Female. Most importantly one can pray inside the mosque.Another 15th century mosque, 'Singair Mosque' is just at opposite side of the road. An interesting fact is that this mosque has 72 gumbad instead of 60 but it has 60 pillars inside!

Puthia Temple Complex

Reviewed By faysal_06153 - Dhaka City, Bangladesh

Located around 25-30 kilometers from Rajshahi city, the archaeological complex is scattered with palaces and temples within a vast area. The palace was built in 1895, which is undergoing renovation works recently. There are two big temples, one is the pancharatna govinda temple just beside the palace and the other one is the pancharatna shiva temple. There are many big ponds around the area which were used by the then queen. The shadow of the shiva temple on the pond is really mesmerizing. There are no fees for the complex and no guide facilities are available. You can take a bus from the Rajshahi city to Puthia and then take a van or easy bike from there. Its around 1-2 kilometers from the main road. A nice place to visit if you are interested in ancient archaeological stuffs and terracotta works!!!

Boga Lake

Reviewed By sayedeco - Dhaka City, Bangladesh

Many years ago,it was a village upon a big mountain,They are happy all time and most nature lover and taker also.There's a big snake live near the area,At night time the big snake came to village and go back with a food (cow or something like that) by hunting.The villagers make a meeting with a plan to attacking those big snake at nighttime while it comes.As planed,they attack it,kill it and eat it fully.An oldest couple of that village doesn't take that killed snake very unfortunately.
On that night the Oldest man and next night the oldest women saw a same dream that,there shown the same message is, 'A Big Danger is Coming,please left the village'.
Next morning,the oldest couple leave the village and that night,a big power destroyed and vanished the village,nobody is alive.All the materials or things with death body are finished under the mountain and it become a Lake.
Called 'boga lake'.Its a very natural lake,fresh water and you can take a fresh bath here.Some of the Eco cottage are created here with the bank of the lake.You can accommodate and take food with Bar-b-Que there.Its deepness is 115 feet and its 1073 feet highest from sea level.There also an Army camp there for the safety&security of the area.You have to entry and signed there.
It's a full nature based area,At night time you can hear the sound of Nature very purely and closely from here staying at any nearby cottage.
Its was a three hours journey from Ruma bazar of Bandarban by Land Cruiser.
You can also go by feet.It's a big adventure,because after a taught journey,when you reach here,saw it from its highest point of entry,and after check-in and doing formalities,when you take your body in the water,you get a superb freshness purely.
That's the 'boga lake' from 'Hidden paradise of nature' of 'BEAUTIFUL BANGLADESH'
