Day 1:
Starting early in the morning we will head south-east towards the famous Sonargaon, the ancient capital of Isa Khan’s kingdom in Bengal and later a bustling merchant city.  During the 19th Century, Panam City was filled with Hindu merchants, especially Cloth Merchants as Bangladesh was so well known for producing the some of the finest Muslins and Cottons in the world.  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 see the famous Grand Trunk Road, which was built by Sher Shah Suri, extended approximately 2500 kilometers from Bangladesh across northern India to Peshawar in Pakistan's North-West Frontier Province.

Later we will visit 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 thirteenth century. Mograpada 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, Madrasa building, fath Shah's Mosque (1484), NahbatKhana, grave of sharfuddinabutawwamah (d. 1300), and the tombs of Shah Ibrahim Danishmand, Shah Kamal, Shaykh Muhammad Yusuf and Munna Shah Darwesh.

Afterwards we will head back to Comilla.

Over night at BARD

Day 2:
Starting early in the morning after breakfast at the BARD we will visit another important Buddhist site, Mainamati.

Mainamati is actually home to multiple Buddhist sites, dating from the 7th to 12th Centuries CE. It is the home of one of the most important Buddhist archaeological sites in the region. We will also visit the Comilla Cantonment, located nearby and houses a beautiful colonial era World War II war cemetery, protected and maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. We will visit the Mainamati Museum where the various archaeological relics discovered in the district are preserved. We will also visit sacred Lalmai Hindu temple on Lalmai Hilltop, not too far from Comilla, before returning to Dhaka.
