Teota Palace: One of the most fascinating of the many vanishing palaces of Bangladesh, Teota is about a two hour drive from Dhaka. It was the home of a dynasty founded by Panchanan Chaudhuri, who was born in about 1740. But early in the 19th Century, Panchanan returned to Manikganj, his home district, presumably acquiring the rights of tax collection and becoming zaminder, and commenced the building of the palace complex that was to become the main residence of his family for 150 years. The family was so highly regarded that they were one of the few zaminder families in Bengal, to be accorded a personal honorific of a royal title, presumably Nawab. Around 1920, the striking Navaratna Temple was built beside the palace. In a style that might be described as Art Deco meets Hinduism, the temple was probably the last great construction on the site.

Shivalaya Temple: Clutched in the embrace of the sacred Bodhi tree, the remains of this sacred building seems, almost, to be a metaphor for the archaeology and rich religious history of Bangladesh. One of literally thousands of such Hindu shrines and temples that are sadly being neglected and left to ruin across the country. It also seems, in its own way, to represent the unique fusion in the lands of Bangladesh of the Hindu and Buddhist religions. The tree is regarded as sacred in many belief groups, and is often found at a social centre of communities but is especially associated with Buddhism since the Buddha himself found enlightenment beneath one such tree. Thus to have a Bodhi tree wrapped around the Hindu remnant seems almost symbolic.

Brass Factory in Dhamrai: Where Brass works is still undertaken in the 'vanishing wax' method that has been used in the Ganges Basin since the early development of metal in Gangetic Plain Civilisation, one of the earliest, between 4 and 5,000 years ago.
