Panam, the forgotten City

Sonargaon was the capital of the ancient kingdom of Bengal, ruled by Isa Khan. Bengal is now divided into Paschimbanga, which is a state in India, and the nation of Bangladesh. Sonargaon was known as 'The City of Panam' and was a focal part of the renowned Deva Dynasty until the 13th century. Mainly middle or upper class people inhabited Sonargaon during that time. After the 13th century Sonargaon was made a secondary capital to the main capital of the Sultanate of Bengal. This lasted until the arrival of the Mughals. I earnestly request the authorities-that-be to protect what remains of early 20th century urban Bengal architecture on this site, actively, and prevent further vandalism.
