Mohera Jomidar Bari - Tangail

Mohera Jomidar Bari - Tangail

Tangail is a district beside the Jamuna river from Dhaka division. This district had the most Jomidar than other districts of Bangladesh. Possibly every thana of this district had a Jomidar. I guess there were 7/8 Jomidar available in past at Tangail. Both Muslim and Hinu Jomidar ruled Tangail. I am going to talk about the Mohera Jomidar Bari that is located near at Pakulla of Mirzapur.

It is not sure but people believed that they have started their Jomidary somewhere around 1890. First Jomidar was Kalichoron Shaha. Beside their Land Lordship, they have conducted trading related to Jute and Salt. They were the owner of huge land properties from different part of Bangladesh. During country division and war, most of them moved into India. Only very few are living at Tangail. Their attractive edifices are now become a tourist spot. Since they were rich, people says they have built those building before establishing their Zomidari.

Mohera Jomidar Bari has several main buildings. Each of those are presented below with short description.

In my opinion, Ananda lodge is the most stylish building from the entire premise. This building has a touch of white and blue. It has eight columns in front of the building.

Most attractive part of the building is the small hanging balcony at second floor. It seems like someone like Juliet used to pass her afternoon there. This building has a lovely garden at front side.

This building is built during the last portion of the Jomidari Era. Thats why this one is looking different than other three. It is having more rooms compare to any others from the premise.

Architecture of the building is somewhat similar to the colonial era buildings. The shape of the building is like the letter 'U' in English alphabet. During the noon-afternoon, you'll find a play of light and shadow for that shape from the inside of the building.

It is possible to go there and come back with in the same day. So you don't need to stay there during night. Still, if you want to stay, that case Jamuna Resort, Elenga resort are the best facilities from the district. Also you can check few other hotels from the main town. I didn't stay there ever at night.
