Chittagong: Old Railway Station Terminal


Share at Facebook

Saturday, 27th March 2010


Chittagong (চট্টগ্রাম) has two railway station terminals. One is new, and another one is old which was built by the British Government. There is a main road beside the terminal which is known as station road.

This old railway station terminal is very near from the hotel "Golden Inn" (where I use to stay during my Chittagong visit). Basically it's not a tourist place. But I couldn't resist myself to view this place as I used to walk beside the road very often. Also its old red structure lured me to visit the station.

This station is not functional for the long distance journey. Some local trains take a stoppage here. Also some goods carrying trains use to upload and download their goods at this station.

As this is an old one, you'll find this place is less crowed, and no chaos at all. even if a pin gets dropped here you should hear it. It will only take 10-15 minutes to visit the place. Everything is so old fashioned inside that will take you several decades behind like a time machine!
