Puthia Temple Complex

Reviewed By faysal_06153 - Dhaka City, Bangladesh

Located around 25-30 kilometers from Rajshahi city, the archaeological complex is scattered with palaces and temples within a vast area. The palace was built in 1895, which is undergoing renovation works recently. There are two big temples, one is the pancharatna govinda temple just beside the palace and the other one is the pancharatna shiva temple. There are many big ponds around the area which were used by the then queen. The shadow of the shiva temple on the pond is really mesmerizing. There are no fees for the complex and no guide facilities are available. You can take a bus from the Rajshahi city to Puthia and then take a van or easy bike from there. Its around 1-2 kilometers from the main road. A nice place to visit if you are interested in ancient archaeological stuffs and terracotta works!!!

Varendra Research Museum

Reviewed By Sabbir S

This is the last please I'll select if I ever feel bore in Rajshahi. The museum has many interesting things but there are no description for visitors. You just have to watch and read titles.
If you have no idea about history and religion then visiting this place will be just a waste of time. You'll learn nothing.

Bagha Mosque

Reviewed By safar1107 - India

Lovely terracotta mosque, built in 1523 A.D. Its about 44 km east/south-east of Rajshahi town. Its off the highways and we took a car. the road was good and ran through green paddyfields and mango groves. Such historical buildings can be irreparably by regular everyday usage - and need to be preserved as heritage buildings.

Chhoto Sona Mosque

Reviewed By Raymond W - Chengdu, China

It is sometimes said that Bangladesh's greatest architectural achievements were in the area of terracotta. Combining fine terracotta decoration with a solid brick structure, topped with multiple domes, Choto Sona (known by several trans-literations) is one of this country's lovely old mosques. It is best visited from Rajshahi, whose riverside setting makes it arguably one of the country's nicest towns.

Bara Ahnik Mandir

Reviewed By ASharmin - Dhaka City, Bangladesh

I just love Rajshahi for it's ancient beauty and structure. Last time when I visited to Rajshahi again I had a time to visit Puthia Complex. Bara Ahnik Mandir is a part of Puthia Complex. It's a religious place. There is no chance to enter the Mandir, you just look outside of it and I believe you love it. Never visit just this Mandir, try to catch up other parts also.

Pancharatna Gobinda Temple

Reviewed By PPCI-BG - Italy

Il grande tempio del complesso di Puthia, dedicato a Krishna, è stato eretto nel diciannovesimo secolo e ha un bel decoro in terracotta che racconta la storia di Krishna and Radha. La tipologia pancharatna è con cinque cupole, quattro agli angoli e una centrale. Molto bello ma bisognoso di attenzione per la sua conservazione.
