The world Herittage sites of Bangladesh



                                       The World Heritage Sites of Bangladesh

Though Bangladesh is a small country it has many heritage sites. The historical Shat Gambuj Mosque of Bagerhat, the Buddist Vihara of Paharpur, the longest sea-beach of the Bay of Bengal of Chittagong and the Sundarbans are the most important of them. The Shat Gambuj Mosque is situated in the district of Bagerhat. It is the 15th century Islamic edifice founded by Saint Khan Jahan Ali. The ruins of the Buddist Vihara is situated at Paharpur in the district of Rajshahi. It was founded in the 7th century. It is the largest Buddist monastery in the Indian subcontinent. It bears an archeological importance for its historical and cultural value. Again Sundarbans is the most important world heritage site in Bangladesh which is situated to the South of the country. The Sundarban is famous for the Royal Bengal Tigers, deer and sundari trees. It is the largest mangrove forest in the world. The sea-beach of the Bay of Bengal in Chittagong is also a world heritage site because it is the longest sea coast in the world. We are lucky enough to have as many as four world heritage sites in such a small country like ours. World heritage sites are very important internationally. Tourist from abroad come to visit every year. These world heritage sites are not only assets to our nation but also to the whole world. The government should take proper care of the world heritage sites in Bangladesh. The people of Bangladesh should protect the world heritage sites from being decline or destruction.
