Upon arrival at Rajshahi airport, meet your driver and drive to the Kusumba mosque. This mosque is one of the last examples of the finest stone works in Bengal. Sulaiman built it in 966 A. H. (1558 A.D) during the reign of Ghiyasud-din Bahadur Shah (Journal, Asiatic Society of Bengal; Vol. LXX, pt. I, 1904. P. 117. J.N. Sarkar, History of Bengal, Vol. II, p.180). 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.

Leave the hotel after breakfast for Puthia, a charming town renowned for Bangladesh's many historically significant Hindu structures. 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.

Maybe we can take the morning walk through the daily Bazar area before breakfast and take a late breakfast around 8 AM at Parjatan Motel and check out. Rajshahi is also known as the 'silk capital' of Bangladesh. Now we will invite you to visit a local silk production and watch the weaving, dyeing, block and batik painting of this exclusive natural fibre. This will be a guided trip through the entire process of silk fibre turning into a nice piece of cloth. You may get some souvenirs from their showroom, and they have lovely collections of local style clothes and plain silk fabrics for custom-tailoring. Maybe a quick visit to the Varendra Research Museum would be an exciting discovery of archaeology and the ancient history of Bengal.

    Great time in bangladesh
    Jan 2019 • Couples
    We were in Bangladesh during the festive season, after Xmas, and due to the elections we had to change our plans at the very last minute, but Jewel could arrange us a very interesting trip around the Country from North to South: Panam Nagar, the Char villages, Chittagong Shipbreak yard, Comilla and in the far North, the Tea plantations in Sreemangal. Both the guides and the driver were very helpful and safe driving.
    And, on top of it all, we had the opportunity to visit an orphanage ruled by a very brave woman. What a wonderful time we had.
