Welcome to Bogra
A sprawling town centred around the hectic Shat Matha (seven-road) junction, Bogra acts primarily as a transport hub for travellers. This is the best 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 interested in experiencing life on Bangladesh’s chars (islands made of silt and sand deposit), a few mid-river settlements on the Jamuna River can be explored on a half-day trip from Bogra, via Sariakandi Ghat.
