The delightful little village of Puthia (pou-tee-ah) is positively bursting at the seams with dilapidated palaces and bewitching temples, and is one of the shining highlights of Bangladesh. If Puthia were in almost any other country the ruins here would be seething in camera-snapping tourists, but lost as it is in the remote paddy fields of Bangladesh, you’ll have it all to yourself.
The vegetation-chocked village centres on a cheerful bazaar and a number of lily covered ponds in which people fish, swim and wash both themselves and their buffalo.
