Old Capital city of Bangladesh (A nostalgic day to Sonargaon)

By Parjatak Tours (Dhaka City)
Sonargaon originally Svarnagrama or Suvarnagrama, denotes an ancient janapada (territory) of Vanga stretched on both banks of the Brahmaputra, which is said to have originally been inhabited by a race called Svarna-bhushita, literally meaning ‘dressed up with gold’ and signifying a people traditionally adorned with gold-wear. The antiquity of this region may be traced back to the period of Kuru-Pandava war described in the Mahabharata, and even earlier. Its importance in ancient time is borne by the traditional holy bathing places of Langalband and Panchamighat on the west bank of the Old Brahmaputra. The ancient territory of Suvarnagrama was originally bounded on the east by the Meghna, south and west by the Dhaleswari and Sitalakshya respectively, and north by the Brahmaputra forming northern extremity of the modern greater Dhaka district. This is the city where you will find the traditional environment of old capital of Bengal. I am sure this old city will blow your mind.

      Indulge in Green Serenity. Beautiful Tea Gardens, Rubber Forest all around the city. In the outskirt visited Lawachara National Park; a mesmerizing destination for nature lovers and wildlife enthusiasts. Situated in Bangladesh, this biodiverse park is home to lush green forests, rich wildlife, and numerous bird species. Visitors can explore the park through well-maintained trails, offering a chance to witness unique flora and fauna up close. Food at Panshi Hotel and Restaurant was great, for breakfast, Lunch and Dinner its the best place to dine in. We stayed at BRAC LC, the place is way cheaper than any resorts yet you will get the ambiance and security and beauty close to resort places. over all one of the best place to visit with in 36-48hrs plan.
