Uncover the Vibrant Heritage of Bangladesh

Bangladesh is a widely known country in South Asia. Profuse greenery and innumerable waterways are two of the country's most noticeable features. With a population of around 156.6 million (2013), Bangladesh is deep-rooted in cultural heritage. Every aspect of life in the country is influenced by its rich cultural traditions. The development of Bengali culture can be attributed to the efforts of multiple famous Bengali writers, authors and thinkers. Rulers of the British Era have also left their indelible marks on different parts of the country in the form of historical buildings and museums. Districts like Bogra, Rajshahi, Rangpur and Dinajpur are redolent with the history of the Raj Era even today.

The architectural heritage of Bangladesh is a traveller's delight. It's home to both ancient historical buildings and contemporary landmarks. The Kantajew Temple, the Lalbagh Fort, the Ahsan Manzil and the Jatiyo Sangsad Bhaban are some of the most visited buildings in the country. Though the Bengali culture is prevalent all across the country, the country has also evolved to assimilate various social groups and religions into its ambit, making itself more colourful.

During your Bangladesh heritage tour, you'll get a chance to explore almost every aspect that makes the country one of the most coveted travel destinations for tourists.
