Jessore: Vorot Rajar Deul(ভরত রাজার দেউল)

Friday, 21 June 2013

Vorot Vayna(ভরত ভায়না) is an archaeological site that is still less known to us. In fact we even don't know much about this place. After discovering the site and also from the excavation, several valuable things were collected from here. By observing those things, experts are guessing this was built by the King Vorot(ভরত রাজা) which was was nearly around 2000 years from now. That time a lot of Buddhist people used to live around this place. Now a days local people know this place as Vorot Rajar Deul(ভরত রাজার দেউল).

This small but valuable archaeological site is located nearly beside the Buri Bhodra River(বুড়ি ভদ্রা নদী) which is now a days suffering from lack of flow and care. But it was mighty once upon a time like many other rivers from our country. The name of the village at where this place is situated named Gourighona(গৌরীঘোনা). It was around the mid day when we have reached there.

How to Go:

Though this place is under the administration of Keshobpur(কেশবপুর উপজেলা) of Jessore(যশোর জেলা), but this is near from the Chuknogor(চুকনগর) of Khulna district(খুলনা জেলা). you can come here either from Jessore(যশোর), Khulna(খুলন) or Satkhira(সাতক্ষীরা). Chuknogor(চুকনগর) falls somewhere at the middle point of these three districts. From Chuknogor(চুকনগর) bazaar I have hired a motor bike for the round trip that did cost us 170 taka. From the bazaar its around a 20-25 minutes of motor bike ride. GPS Coordinate of the place is somewhere near to this (22°51'28.54"N, 89°22'14.60"E).

Where to Eat:

Chuknogor(চুকনগর) bazaar has a famous restaurant named Abbas Hotel(আব্বাসের হোটেল). You can have your lunch there with mutton curry that is cooked with a local spice named Choi(চৈ).

Where to stay:

Unfortunately you have to return back to the District town to stay during the night as you'll not find a suitable hotel rooms there for night staying. My Suggestion is to stay at Khulna(খুলন).
