Dhaka is the city of mosque and we are blessed with myriad of mosques at this compacted town. Comparing to Muslims, there are very few people from Bangladesh are having Buddhist in religion and which reflects to the number of their prayer halls.

Dharmarajika Buddhist Monastery(ধর্মরাজিকা বৌদ্ধ মন্দির) is such a prayer hall(also known as Bashabo Buddha Mondir, বাসাবো বৌদ্ধ মন্দির) located inside the Dhaka city. It was built during 1962 to conduct their activities for Buddhist community along side the prayer, teaching, and meditation.

It is very easy to reach the Monastery. You can come to Bashabo(বাসাবো) from any part of the Dhaka easily. This is just beside the Kamlapur(কমলাপুর) area. From there just ask anyone, and they will show you to way to the Monastery.

This temple has a medium sized pond inside and beside this you'll find a large golden status of Buddha standing on the Lotus. Also you'll find the teaching(Pali Language) center and the prayer hall inside the premise.

Monastery is open as long as the day light is on. During their main festival, it will be the most crowded and exciting place for a visitor(I'll try next time...).
