Luckily, our visit to Sanorgaon was in February which is a month of celebration for locals. Girls decorating her hair with flowers. Such a wonderful old construction with a sense of artistic beauty. Amazing lake, garden, and a statue of a leader knows as Father of Nation. Folk museum is so nice, 3 stories and many things to see in a short time. Our visit was outstanding. Thanks go to: TravelMate who organized our trip.

The folk arts museum is closed on Thursdays :( definitely check before you go given how painful it is to get there through Dhaka traffic. The first website which shows up when I googled the museum didn't even have domain rights, and I wouldn't rely entirely on the web for accurate info. Most annoying, don't understand why the public can't access grounds and lakes surrounding museum even when it's closed, no reason for it to be gated.

Luckily Panam City nearby was open (fyi that's closed on Sundays and half day Monday) so the traffic ordeal wasn't a total loss

Just miles from Dhaka city, Sonargaon offers a glimpse of golden era of Bengal when Sher Shah was the ruler and a bag of rice was sold for pennies. It is now a popular recreational and picnic spot, specially for college and University students in winter.

Sonargaon represents the lost city was an administrative center, port and mint-town in the 14th century the ancient Capital of Bengal (13th to 17th Century) had a long 800 years of history and heritage surrounded by rivers and its fertile lands was the symbol of warm business environment that once weavers could process fine linen and produces world famous Muslin cloths. At that time, the industry and culture of Bengal flourished during the Sultanate period. Hearing the story of wealth of Bengal many people came to illustrate their fortunes and many were famous and many were rich by existing various trades. Sonargaon historic city has many other memories of affluence and its self-independence during Sultanate rules, Bengal Sultan and the glorious story tale of Isha khan who was the chieftain of the Bhati kingdom.
Sonargaon historical expeditions and cruise on Mehna river is most favorable by tourists or photographers.

Excellent place to stay with your family. Friendly environment, 5 star food of high quality. Place for amusement, gym, swimming etc. The country unfortunately is always underrated, but ince you visit, you will encounter very friendly people of excellent hospitality. Frequently food bloggers don’t have to pay for food which is unusual for neighbouring country. Tourism is not a source of this country unlike neighbouring countries.

Sonargaon is definitely one of the most historically and archaeologically significant places in Bangladesh as it was the oldest capital of the country. The government's renovation and restoration steps were commendable. The last time I visited, i had a brilliant time!
