Chondro Mohol - Bagerhat

Chondro Mohol, Bagerhat



Chondro mohol is a picnic spot located at the village near Ronojitpur. It is based on a house named Chondro Mohol (also Chandra mahal). It was probably built by someone named Saiyad Amanul Huda Selim. My guess he was a Navi officer. Chondro is the name of his wife and the name of the house is given after her. Lot of local visitors use to come here everyday.

It was another bright and sunny day, and it was day-2. Before entering inside the Bagerhat's world heritage site, we have visited the Chondro Mohol. I have visited this before once, and this time sneaked inside again as it was near from our way.

An underpass through water that leads you to the other side.



It was free once upon a time, but now a days they have put an entry fee to enter. It's 20 Taka these days. Apart from the house, the area is nicely decorated with flowers. Also it has symbolic sculptures to depict the lost culture of our Bangladesh. It has a mini zoo at one corner, and has several ponds around.

The house Chondro Mohol is surrounded by water and to reach there you have to go through an underpass that goes under the water. Inside the house, they have placed few stuffs which probably are the collected items from several part of the world (as a hobby, or during their traveling).

How to go:


Chondro Mohol is located beside the road of Khulna - Mongla. The name of the village is Ronojitpur. If you are using public transport then you could request the driver to drop you near that village. Also you can ask them about Chondro Mohol. They all know about it. Also you could hire the battery driven auto rickshaw (from Bagerhat town) for round trip to visit the place. The GPS coordinate of Chondro Mohol is (22°40'22.02"N, 89°39'29.54"E).


There are several bus services available for Bagerhat. These days Shakura is the best available bus service that can be found at Gabtoli bus terminal.

Where to Stay:


Bagerhat is very near from the Khulna town. Around 40 minutes of drive at maximum. And Khulna is a divisional district. It has several international standard hotels along with plenty of cheap hotels. You could check in those for your the night staying. I have stayed at the Royal International Hotel, an old and famous hotel from Khulna. And I always go for the old but famous hotels. The reason is, they are always classy and everyone knows about the location. Just ask anyone from Khulna about that hotel from anywhere around there.
