Day 1:
Pick up at 8:30 am

We shall start the day early by heading towards Old Dhaka. The old town is full of history and tradition, with evidences scattered all around the streets. Our first stop will be the famous Sadarghat, one of the largest river ports in the world, it is located in the southern part of Dhaka, on the river Buriganga. You may take a boat ride on the river.

From there we will walk to the Ahsan Manzil, or the Pink Palace, which was the home of the Nawab of Dhaka.  The palace was rebuilt after cyclonic destruction in 1888 by the fourth Nawab of Dhaka, Sir Khwaja Salimullah Bahadur, and was the site of many societal events, parties and balls during the British Period.  The Palace currently contains a museum.

Next is the Lalbagh fort, built approximately 420 years ago, and was originally called Fort Aurangabad, after the Emperor Aurangzeb, to protect Mughal Viceroys and administration. Next we will visit Dhakeshwari Temple, the oldest Hindu Temple in Dhaka, was originally established in 12th Century under the Sena dynasty of kings of the area. Extensively remodeled, its present temples are probably basically 18th Century. The name of the temple, Dhakeshwari, is believed by many to be the origin of the name Dhaka itself. The original 800 year old statue of the goddess was tragically destroyed during the Liberation War along with other buildings.

From there we will visit the famous Curzon hall (built in 1905, to be part of an International Standard University by the then Governor General of India Lord Curzon).

From Curzon Hall we shall move into the Sadarghat area and get on a Ferry and head towards Bagerhat.

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

Day 2:
A day on the fringes in Sundarban with Bagerhat as the focus. Bagerhat has recently been listed by Forbes as one of the 15 Lost Cities of the World. It houses over 50 Islamic monuments and buildings including the 60 Domed Mosque, as well as One, Three, Six, and nine domed mosques.  The city is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Built in the 15th Century, the 60 Domed Mosque (also known as the 60 Pillar Mosque or the Shat Gombuj Masjid) houses an elegant, rather gothic, interior and was built by Khan Jahan Ali, a Sufi missionary who arrived from Yemen with a large group of followers.  His shrine, which stands on the side of a lake filled with crocodiles, is another highlight of the city.  After Khan Jahan Ali’s death the city was eventually deserted and swallowed by the surrounding jungle. Only to be rediscovered in recent history.

Bagerhat almost certainly had foundations as a Buddhist site; however no evidence of that great religion remains.

Overnight in Khulna

Day 3:
This day will be spent in the Sundarbans, the world’s largest mangrove forest. It is also the home of the Royal Bengal Tiger, as well as a wide variety of wildlife. Leaving from Mongla, the small port city south of Khulna, it is possible to make an excursion into the Sundarbans. We will take a hike deep into the mangrove forest. Although the tigers are scarce because they are endangered, you may be lucky enough to see same tiger paw prints. But it is possible to visit crocodile breeding centre as well as the rare ganges and irabati clear water Dolphin.
Overnight in Khulna

Day 4:
Early in the morning, after breakfast we will get on a bus and head back towards Dhaka.
