Kantaji Temple is the most beautiful Hindu Temple in Bangladesh. Built in early 18th century by the Maharaja of Dinajpur, every inches of the temple is wrapped with absolutely stunning terracotta plaques describing epic Hindu stories, which took about thirty years to built by two generations. It is located on a remote part of the country, very difficult to access by road without proper planning.
On Kantaji Temple Day Tour, we will take you to visit Kantaji Temple starting and ending at Dhaka on a single day taking two internal flights. You’ll also visit Nayabad Mosque built on the same period, an amazing school run by an NGO and winning Aga Khan Award for Architecture, and a village of Santal tribe. This tour will be perfect for people who have very limited time and want to experience some amazing sights and attractions of Bangladesh located on the remotest corner of the country on a single day.
