Various historical monuments, including a number of mosques and mausoleums, madrasahs, Hindu temples, Buddhist stupas, Rajbaris (land lord’s palaces), and British-era buildings are all around Rajshahi.
Rajshahi is famous for its fine silk, luscious mango, litchis and magnificent architectural landmarks. The city’s clean streets and green surroundings have always welcomed discriminating tourists. There are 270 varieties of mangoes grown in Rajshahi area during the season between May to September but most of them are available in June and July. Some popular mangoes of this region are Govindobhog, GopalBhog, Gulabkhash, Brindabani, Himshagor or Khirshapat, Lengra, Haribhanga, Lakkhanbhog, Surjopuri, Fazli, Mohonbhog, Amrupoli, Ashini etc. They differ from one another in size, shape and taste. Rajshahi is also famous for some characteristic sweetmeats, Roshkodom, Raghobshahi, Khaja and Kachagolla, not to be found anywhere else in Bangladesh.
Rajshahi is adorned with the timeless charm of beautiful mud houses. These architectural marvels showcase a blend of traditional craftsmanship and practicality, constructed using locally sourced materials like clay, rice husk, wild grass, rice straw, bamboo, and wooden beams. The cool interiors offer respite from the warm climate, creating a soothing and peaceful atmosphere. Walking amidst these mud houses evokes a sense of nostalgia, connecting visitors to a bygone era steeped in simplicity and natural elegance.
Puthia Palace is one of the finest examples of old-style architectural magnificence. It has a number of temples that used to be the center for worship by the local Hindu community. Puthia is located about 32km to the east of Rajshahi City and one km from the Dhaka – Rajshahi highway.
Gaur or Gaud or Gauda or Gour was the ancient capital established by Hindu Senas and called it Lakhnauti, which has turned into a site of great historical importance. Gaur has more mosques than any area of the country after Dhaka and Bagerhaat. It is located about 100km west of Rajshahi City, on Bangladesh – India border at Chapainawabgonj town.
