Introducing Bogra

A sprawling town centred on the hectic Shat Mata (seven-road junction), Bogra acts primarily as a transport hub for most travellers. This is the most convenient place to base yourself for trips to Bangladesh’s most famous and impressive archaeological sites – Mahasthangarh and Paharpur. It’s also the closest major town to the Indian border at Hili.

For those with an interest in the lives of people who live on Bangladesh’s chars (river islands made of silt), you can visit some of the chars on the Jamuna River in a half-day trip from here, via Sariankandi Ghat.
