Visit the archeological site of Mahasthangarh to see the remains of the ancient city of Pundra Nagara. The area abounds with Hindu, Buddhist, and Muslim artifacts, with the highlight being a citadel made of red mud and brick walls, which dates back to the third century BCE. Near the citadel, visit Govinda Bhita Hindu Temple, built in the sixth century CE. The onsite museum exhibits various artifacts, which include a limestone slab inscribed with six lines in Brahmi script dating back to at least the third century BCE. In addition, you can see coins from different centuries, gold ornaments, and other objects recovered from the site.

Contains the remains of an ancient city dated from a slab engraved in third century BC with a fortified Citadel which is a square about a kilometer and a half from the side. All in all a series of mounds more or less excavated and a Museum for the artifacts found. Interesting.

This place of historical interest will remind us of the lives the Ancestors and Old life lines had. This will reflect the beauty and aesthetic appeal of the art work of the then artists. The stacks of materials of old time and arts will mesmerize you if you put a close look. Thanks
It was a great experience! Mahasthangarh is arguably the most ancient civilization of the country. It expresses our existence and our root. Mahasthangarh museum is another architectural beauty. There are many things to know and make ourselves satisfied with the hunger of history. If you ever have a plan to visit Mahasthangarh, never miss the chance to visit the museum. Many precious substances like coins, idols etc. of that era are kept safely here to exhibit the wonders of a lost civilization.
nice clean place. a lot of historical things to see. at times it can get a little crowded. liked it a lot.
I have seen Some historical monuments ,stones,carin,old coins, statue, epigraph, some stone made jewelry inside the museum. Now Bangladesh govt has taken steep to keep maintenance of Mahasthangarh whole area. Bdt 20/- is the entrance fee for per person. Out side museum are newly structured by government for attracting more visitors. And one more thing have to tell "please keep away from broker or this type of cunning people at this area.
This small but well-maintained museum has a lively set of objects discovered in the antique-rich surroundings, and is a good place to familiarise yourself with local history. The highlights are the statues of Hindu gods, terracotta plaques depicting scenes from daily life, and some well-preserved bronze images found in nearby monastery ruins, which date from the Pala period. Other notable objects are the necklaces and the fragments of ancient toilet seats. The gardens are an attraction in their own right.
