Day 01: Temple city Puthia, cruise on Ganges River, local life and culture around Rajshahi
Your guide and driver will come to pick you up from your place and transfer you to the domestic airport to avail of the morning flight to Rajshahi. Upon arrival at Rajshahi airport, your driver will receive you and drive (45 minutes) to the temple town. Puthia - a charming town renowned for the most significant number of historically important Hindu structures in Bangladesh. The Shiva Temple in Puthia is the largest Hindu temple in Bangladesh. The Govinda Temple, decorated with intricate terracotta designs, is in one of the country's finest old Rajbari's courtyards. Continue driving towards the ancient Bagha mosque through a beautiful landscape. It is a richly decorated brick-built ten domed mosque. The decoration of this mosque illustrates the delicate terracotta art of that period.  A lovely lunch will be prepared and served by a local family in Charghat inside a mango garden by the river. Drive back to Rajshahi, a university town on the Padma River. A country boat trip will be offered to enjoy the sunset over the Padma (Ganges) River if we are allowed by daylight. Overnight stay in Grand River View Hotel.  
Day 2: Kusumba mosque, Varendra Research Museum and silk industry
Leave the hotel at 6:30 AM for the Kusumba mosque in Naogaon. This is one of the last examples of the finest stone works in Bengal, which was built by Sulaiman in 966 A. H. (1558 A.D) during the reign of Ghiyasud-din Bahadur Shah. The Mosque is built of brick faced with stone both inside and outside, except the arches, domes and roof. The interior of this Mosque is divided into two aisles and three bays by stone pillars, which support six hemispherical domes on the roof. Octagonal corner towers, triple curved cornice and bands of horizontal mouldings on the façade, a well-designed ladies gallery at the north-west corner, three ornamented mihrabs on the western wall makes this Mosque worth visiting. Drive back towards Rajshahi town. Rajshahi is also known as the 'silk capital' of Bangladesh; visit a local silk production and watch the weaving, dyeing, block and batik painting of this exclusive natural fibre. We will invite you on a guided trip through the entire silk fibre turning into a nice piece of cloth. This place would be an excellent place to collect some souvenirs. Lunch would be served at a local restaurant in the town. Maybe a quick visit to the Varendra Research Museum would be an exciting discovery of archaeology and the ancient history of Bengal. Drive to Rajshahi airport to avail an afternoon flight to Dhaka.
