Before getting the holiday, you dream to travel here or there and the travel list piles up in your head automatically. But when the holidays get started, you start thinking how to go, where to stay and is there any accommodation facility at all or not?

Again if you get the hotels, you don’t get it according to your budget list. So to lessen your trouble I made the hotel resources with the average budget.

Now, traveling has become a trend. So I can see many excited people counting their days for holidays. Since most of the people are young and students, who’re rushing towards the spots nowaday, so I tried to arrange from the low price to hight price of the hotel tariff  so that anybody with low budget can enjoy traveling.

Have a look and happy traveling!

Adventurous people love backpacking to remote areas. They trigger a risky place to get the full flavor of adventure. But there are a few people who are travel lover but not adventurous. These people used to crowd different restaurants or food courts a few years ago due to lack of places to visit in or near Dhaka.

Recently this trend is changing. Crazy people are now discovering many places near Dhaka to relax and to heal the heart from boredom and busy life. Considering the money, time and distance, today I’ll talk about the recently discovered place, named Moinot Ghat. It’s popularly known as mini cox’s bazar.

Recently I had a trip to this Moinot Ghat. I loved the serpentine road, fresh air to breath in, the cold water to soothe my body and mind and finally a day well spent!

If you want to witness the mesmerizing ambiance, melodious sound of the water wave, sunrise, and sunset, you can have a short trip to Moinot Ghat. It’s located in Dohar Upazila of Nawabgonj near Dhaka.

First of I would you like to thank John Henry Ravenshaw who took these pictures in and around 1871 and the source of the pictures: British Library where i found the archives in 2009. We are very proud of that our beloved temple was photographed for almost 150 years from now.

Image of the Kantaji Temple at Kantanagar in Kaharole PS, taken from the south, by John Henry Ravenshaw by a British serviceman in 1871. Maharaja Pran Nath of Dinajpur built the temple in 1752 and it is one of the most widely elaborate and decorate late medieval brick temples of Bangladesh. The temple stands on a sandstone plinth and has the curved cornice typical of buildings in this area. It had three tiers originally topped by a magnificent tower. There were extra little towers at the four corners of both the lower levels. All nine towers were later demolished during 1897 great Assam earthquake, while the body of the temple was in good shape and still survives today. The inner sanctuary has three passageways and is encompassed by a verandah that has three curved openings on every face. The exterior is adorned with thousands of terracotta plaques of varied floral and figurative motifs.

Triple-arched entrance of the Kantaji Temple at Kantanagar, with richly-carved surrounds, taken by John Henry Ravenshaw in c.1871. The series of views of the temple is described by Ravenshaw as follows: ”The eight views of Kantonugger represent different features of a Hindoo temple to Kanti (Vishnu), commenced in 1704 by Rajah Prannath (Martin’s India, page 628). It is in perfect preservation: the ruin prognosticated by Dr Buchanan has not come to pass. It is still kept up by the Rajbaree; and the image, said to have been brought from the Jumna, is still kept in the temple. The building itself is profusely ornamented with sculptures representing the various legends of Hindoo mythology. These sculptures are not mouldings in brick, such as are so common in Gour, but are all chiselled out from the bricks after erection. The bricks themselves are very hard, as may be supposed from the 150 years these sculptures have been remaining in preservation.’

This temple was built in 1752 by Maharaja Pran Nath of Dinajpur and is one of the most elaborate of the late medieval brick temples of Bangladesh. Most of the scenes represented are from the epics of the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. This view shows the richly-carved detail of a pillar of the temple.
