The Heritage Sites are places of importance to cultural or natural heritage as described in theWorld Heritage Convention, established in 1972.[1] Cultural heritage consists of monuments (such as architectural works, monumental sculptures, or inscriptions), groups of buildings, and sites (including archaeological sites). Natural features (consisting of physical and biological formations), geological and physiographical formations (including habitats of threatened species of animals and plants), and natural sites which are important from the point of view of science, conservation or natural beauty, are defined as natural heritage.[2] Bangladesh accepted the convention on 3 August 1983, making its historical sites eligible for inclusion on the list.[3]

As of 2022, there are three World Heritage Sites in Bangladesh, and a further five on the tentative list.[3] The first two sites listed were the Mosque City of Bagerhat and the Ruins of the Buddhist Vihara at Paharpur, in 1985. Both sites are cultural. The most recent site, the Sundarbans, was listed in 1997 and is a natural site.[3]

World Heritage Sites
UNESCO lists sites under ten criteria; each entry must meet at least one of the criteria. Criteria i through vi are cultural, and vii through x are natural.[4]

Bangladesh might look like a relatively young nation, but it has a rich history which offers you to satisfy your voyage on archaic sites.

The colonial British rule and the liberation war have made Bangladesh a must visit place for the expedition lovers to witness some marvelous archaeological works of ancient time.

Here is a platonic journey through the top eight historical places in Bangladesh.

  1. Lalbagh Fort in Dhaka

This famous historic place is situated on the northeast side of Dhaka, Bangladesh. This was built during the Mughal rule, on seventeenth century.

Lalbagh fort is believed to be an incomplete Mughal fort structure which was started in 1678 AD by the Mughal Subahdar Muhammad Azam Shah. As the structure applies to the fine architectural work of that period, it has four main structures which are a Diwan-i-Aam, a water tank in its eastern side, the tomb of Bibi Pari and the Lalbagh Fort Mosque. During the nineteenth century, this fort grew up to be a place of revolution by the local soldiers, against the colonial British rule.

The best time to visit this place is November to March, a little wintery environment, paints colors to the fort and its lush green garden.

  1. Kotila Mura in Comilla

This old historic place is situated on a flattened hillock and has three structures of Buddhist stupas. The three shrines are believed to be the three jewels of Buddhism, the Dharma, Sangha, and the Buddha. The only way to the shrine is through the east, a gateway which leads to a huge hall. This authentic Buddhist structure was active from the seventh century to the thirteenth century.

It has a nearby place to visit, the Shalbanvihar which is also a Buddhist place, one amongst the Mainamati ruins.
