Kantajew Temple Day Tour starts with a swift morning flight from Dhaka’s Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport to Saidpur. The flight takes approximately an hour, and upon landing, you’ll be greeted by an air-conditioned vehicle ready to escort you through the verdant Bangladeshi countryside to Dinajpur, the location of the stunning Kantajew Temple.

Regarded as the most beautiful Hindu temple in Bangladesh, Kantajew Temple is a testament to exceptional craftsmanship. The temple, conceived in the early 18th century by the Maharaja of Dinajpur, is a canvas of beautiful terracotta plaques narrating epic Hindu stories. The remarkable detailing across its structure took almost three decades and two generations to complete.

In addition to the captivating Kantajew Temple, the Kantajew Temple Day Tour encompasses the historic Nayabad Mosque and the Chini Mosque, both striking examples of Islamic architecture from the same era. You’ll also visit a remarkable school in a remote village run by a non-profit organization and recognized with the esteemed Aga Khan Award for Architecture.

As the day concludes, we’ll guide you through the fascinating bustle of a local train station, a captivating, authentic look into everyday Bangladeshi life, before taking a flight back to Dhaka.
