Explore the Attractions of Naogaon District

Forming part of the Rajshahi Division, the district of Naogaon in northern Bangladesh has a number of interesting sites to visit. One of the historical attractions of Naogaon is the ruined Raja's Mansion at Dubalhati. Constructed during the Pala Dynasty (750-1174), this once majestic palace was occupied by the Rajas and Jamindars who ruled the area at the time. The building has been left to decay, but visitors can nonetheless get an idea of its size and architecture, with the sleeping chambers, dining hall, prayer hall, private theater, guest house, stables and attendants quarters still discernible. The palace was originally a three-floored building, but only two floors remain, with some terracotta embellishments and motifs made from plaster having escaped destruction by the elements. Four ponds surround the palace, and large water storage tanks remain within the palace walls, built by Raja Horonath Ray Bahadur I to provide locals with water during the 1874 famine. He also furthered education in the area by founding the high school named in his honor and being a financial benefactor of the Rajshahi Government College.
