We will leave early for our day trip to Sonargaon, the ancient Capital of Isa Khan’s kingdom in Bengal and later a bustling merchant city.  We will start our tour by visiting Mograpara. It appears to be the site of the earliest Muslim settlement in Sonargaon, and the centre of Islamic learning during the last quarter of the 13th Century. Mograpara formed a suburb of the Hindu capital city of Sonargaon and the site of the later Muslim metropolis. The remains at Mograpara include the Dargahbari complex with the Dargah building (Tomb), Madrasa building, Fateh Shah's Mosque (1484), NahbatKhana (housed the burglars), grave of Sharfuddin Abutawwamah (d. 1300) and the tombs of Shah Ibrahim Danishmand, Shah Kamal, Shaykh Muhammad Yusuf and Munna Shah Darwesh.

In this tour, we will visit the famous Panam City. During the 19th Century, Panam City was filled with Hindu merchants, especially cloth merchants, as Bangladesh was so well known for producing some of the finest Muslins and Cottons in the world, although we know that in 1586, it was the Jain merchants who managed the trade. Here we will spend couple of hours, visiting the fine collection of 16th and 17th Century merchant houses that comprise much of what remains of Sonargaon. We will also catch sight of the famous Grand Trunk Road, which was built by the Pathan ruler Sher Shah Suri (who ousted the Mughal Emperor Humayun), extends approximately to 2500 kilometers from Bangladesh across Northern India, to Peshawar in Pakistan's North-West Frontier Province and later visit the Folk Art & Craft Museum.

*Kindly note you are required to wear full pants while entering any mosque, temple, church or religious site.
