Visit To A Place Of Historical Place Essay
Bangladesh has many historical places, though it is a small country. I visited only some of these eye-catching places. Mahasthangarh is one of the famous historical places in Bangladesh. Last year I got an opportunity to visit Mahasthangarh in Bogra. It is well known for a famous Buddhist monastery.
It stands on the western bank of the Korotoa. It is a few kilometers away from Bogra town. When we reached Mahasthangarh, a glorious part of our past civilization opened up before our eyes. This place was known as Pundranagar. Pundranagar, the capital of the Mouryas, Guptas, Senas and other Hindu dynasties, was also a historical interest. It was a very developed city. It was about 2000 meters long and 1500 meters wide. This city was fenced around by a wall. We entered into the monastery and saw some elevated places that soothed our eyes. I was impressed to see the natural sights. These elevated places are known as ‘Vitas’, ‘Kundas’, ‘Gous’ and ‘Dhaps’.
After that we visited the ghat of Kankabati near the elevated places and then the mazar of Shah Sultan Balkhi Mahi Sawar. This impressed me about the religious harmony of our past civilization. Then we went to the museum at Mahasthangarh. The relics of the past have been kept in the museum. We saw some images, dice, ornaments and pots there. These relics reminded us of our rich old history. I became astonished to learn about our rich culture and heritage.
Visiting a historical place is pleasing and educative as well. It was a great pleasure for me to visit such a famous historical place. It was a new experience in my life. I will remember the day as long as I live.
The best way to go to Mahasthangarh is by road from Dhaka. It usually takes about 5 hours to get there.
