A Short Trip To Rajshahi

Teas Stall Beside The Road
Kids Fishing And Having Fun
River Crossing And Passengers
Art Work Behind The Rickshaw
Rajshai Zoo
Another Tea Stall. But It’s Quite Interesting. Instead Of Spoon The Guy Making Tea With Very Thin Iron Stick!
This Giant Tap Was Given To People Of Rajshahi From Queen Bhabani, India. Probably In British India Period. There Are Few More Taps In Various Places In Rajshashi City.
River Bank Of Padma
Village Tea Stall
Train Station
The Division of Rajshahi in the north-western corner of Bangladesh is bordered on the east by the mighty Jamuna River and the Padma/Ganges River on the south, and shares a disputed border with India to the north and west, making access to Gaud, one of the most interesting archaeological sites in all of Bengal, almost impossible. During Partition, the ancient capital of Gaur was split through the middle and now part of it lies in Bangladesh and part in India.
Rajshahi Division has an impressive collection of sites which are spread over a wide area. Rajshahi is a University town, the centre of the silk Industry, as well as being an important cultural centre. The Varendra Research Museum is an essential starting point as it contains a massive collection of artefacts related to the area. The building itself is a blend of Hindu and Buddhist styles of the eighth and ninth centuries with the prevailing British influence of the 1920s. Inside is one of the finest collections of black stone sculptures in the country.
