Visit the old capital of Bengal Enjoy Boating on the mighty river to the fishermen village


The oldest capitals of Bengal, Situated about 27 km distance from Dhaka, the site represents the substantial remains of an early medieval bygone city called Suvarnagram>Sonargaon. The main attraction of the site is an early modern settlement called Panam City. It lies on the close vicinity of Sonargaon. Sonargaon was the seat of Dev Dynasty until the 13TH century. From then onward till the advent of the Mughals, Sonargaon was the subsidiary capital of the sultanate of Bengal. The ancient monuments, which are still intact over there includes, the tomb of sultan Ghiasuddin (1399-1409 AD). It is really fascinating to enjoy the fishing by the small country boats, Virgin river islands & fishermen villages during the trip.
