Somapura Buddhist Vihara & Museum, Mahasthangarh archeological sites & Museum And Puthia Temple City


An important site of the Ganges delta, Bangladesh was an integral part of the medieval civilizations that inhabited these regions. Although a country considerably rich in archaeological wealth, both during the Muslim and pre-Muslim rules, most of it is still unknown. The earlier history of Bangladesh reveals that Buddhism received royal patronage from some important ruling dynasties like the great Pala rulers, the Chandras and the Deva Kings. Under their support, numerous well-organized, self-contained monasteries sprang up all over the country. These monasteries once thriving with life were also greatly appreciated and written about by travelers like Ibne Battuta, Fa-Shien and Hiuen Tsabg. With two archaeological sites labeled as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Bangladesh still has much to reveal beneath her plains.
