Places of Interest, district Munshiganj


Share at Facebook

Under the Dhaka Division of Bangladesh, there are 17 districts available, and Munshiganj is one of them. Also this district is just adjacent to the Capital City Dhaka. Long time back this district was renowned as "Bikrampur" or "Vikrampur". Now a days, people of that places still feel proud to call them from "Bikrampur".

Popular locations for visit:

If you are planning to visit the Munshiganj district, you can check the "places of interest", or "must see" items from the link http://icwow.blogspot.com/search/label/munshiganj. Also if you visited any other places from Munshiganj, that is not listed at my link, that case you can add that here as comment.

Where to Stay:

Though the district is just beside the Dhaka, still its hard to find a suitable hotel from the district. The main reason, may be people from dhaka used to come this place for a single day trip. But anyway, if you need to stay at Munshiganj town, that case I'll suggest you to stay at "Hotel Comfort" this one is the best from the town. Also you there is another one which is "Hotel three star international". But the quality of the rooms of this hotel is not that much good. For both cases, it will take 100-700 taka per night depending upon the room.

How to reach:

There are several transport is available from Dhaka to Munshiganj. The best two bus services are "Nayan Paribahan" and "Dhaka Transport", both of the buses used to start from "Gulistan" of dhaka. It will cost you 30-40 taka, and will require 1 hrs to 2 hrs bus journey depending upon the road traffic. Also there are other bus service is available from "Postogola" of dhaka, one of the bus is "Gangchil" available from that area.

Also you can hire CNG auto rickshaw from the "Postogola", and it will take you 250-350 to take you at Muktarpur bridge. Remember, if you are hiring CNG, make sure who will provide the toll of the bridge. For you information, the toll fee is 20 taka. So negotiate with the driver of CNG about who will provide the toll.

  1. As far as I understand Fegnasar/Fegunasar is a Shiva Temple (Mandir), not a Math.
