Bangladesh Buddhism Culture Tour

 

Bangladesh Buddhism Culture Tour

Tour Duration: 10 Days, 9 Nights

 

Bangladesh is the most potential destination for Buddhist culture since Buddhism was originally spread from here and enlightened the whole world. The most important literary sources about Buddhism in India and Bangladesh could be traced from the travel report of great Chinese pilgrims. The most prominent ones were Fa-hien who travelled overland between 399-414 AD, Huen Tsang travelled between 629-645 AD and I-Tsing travelled between 671-692 AD. From the account of the most prominent Chinese pilgrims Tahien and Hiuen Tsaug mentioned that Lord Buddha with his 500 disciples visited Pundravardhana which is presently Mahasthangarh (in Bangladesh) and preached his new Gospel at SAMATATA (South Eastern part of Bangladesh) including the Lalmai and Moinamoti range. According to Arakanese book Rajoang that Buddha visited BURMA (Mayanmar) with his disciple and from there in his return journey he visited Hastigram, Amragram and Chandranath which is very near to Chittagong hill district of Bangladesh. The holly hair relics and foot prints of Lord Buddha have been preserved in the Nandan Kanan Buddhist Temple, Chittagong. From this valuable reserves some portion were donated to Srilanka in 1957, to Japan in 1964, to Thailand in 1979 and again to Srilanka in 2007. The Chandrnath Buddhist temple also has the rare footprint of Lord Buddha.

The Treasure of North Bengal

Tour Duration: 07 Nights, 08 Days

 

The vast alluvial floodplain of North Bengal were a cradle of ancient Buddhist and Hindu Kingdoms that held away over the region for centuries. Excavations at Mahasthangar have revealed cultural layers dating back to the third century BC. Descriptions of the area reached as far as Greece and China. Hiuen Tsiang, a Chinese traveller who visited Mahasthangar between 638 645 AD, described an earlier visit to the city by the Buddha. Ashoka, the great Mauryan emperor (250 BC), built a stupa in Mahasthangar to commemorate a relic left there by the Buddha. During the first several centuries after Christ many kingdoms- some Buddhist, others Hindu flourished, then decayed. In the mid- eighth century the people, tired of anarchy, raised to the throne an indigenous chief named Gopala. He began the famous Pala dynasty, whose kings ruled the lower Ganges and Brahmaputra valleys for more than three hundred years. The Pala kings were great patrons of art and learning. Eventually the Bangla school of Buddhism spread north through Nepal to Tibet and south through Myanmar to Java. This trip will give you the experience of the treasure of North Bengal that steals the attention of your camera.

This region is full of wildlife hidden in its deep rainforests; however due to deforestation, poaching and a growing human population most if not all of these animals are in serious danger. We will aim to find some of the most impressive and rarest over the next three days and try to highlight their plight. Depending on the local conditions the order we visit the different parks here is changeable; but we will aim to visit Lowacharra National Park today. Once in the park we will have guided walks into the forest to try and find the very rare western hoolock gibbon which are more regularly seen here than anywhere else (an estimate of 49 individuals living in the park was made in 2006).

Once we are on our boat we will unpack and start our journey towards the Bay of Bengal. Along the way we will see the hustle and bustle of Bangladesh begin to fade away as the towns turn to villages which in turn become shacks and then nothing but trees as far as the eye can see. There is a wealth of people who use the water ways here and its brilliant to see the local people using fishing and harvesting techniques many hundreds of years old. As well as the people and boats we will keep an eye out for brahminy kites and grey-headed fish eagles soaring above and best of all the highly endangered Gangetic river dolphins which briefly break the surface to blow. We will stop at the Dhangmari forest office to gain permission to enter and meet our armed escorts (which are mandatory for visiting the park).

Here we will spend the night surrounded by mangrove forests, virgin sea beaches and a view out into the Bay of Bengal. Tigers are regularly spotted here and it’s not uncommon to see them prowling the beach at night or early morning as well as herds of spotted deer and family groups of wild boar. We will spend an hour to two in the evening with a spotlight to try and find some tigers.

 

Day 9: Sundarbans 
Early morning before sunrise there will be the option to have an hour or so spotlighting to see if there is a tiger having a drink at the rivers edge or even swimming across the river; after this we will use small country boats to travel into the smaller creeks and streams of the mangrove forest and look for drinking animals like chital, tigers, wild boar, rhesus macaques as well as the local bird life such as white-throated kingfishers, black-capped kingfishers, rudy king fisher green bee-eaters, little herons and the very rare masked fin-foot.

We will spend some time on the beach here and relax in one of the most wild and remote areas in the world.

Festivals in Sylhet- Srimangal

Manipuri Raash festival
Popularly known as the raash festival. Though this festival is organised in Monipuri Royal Palace in Sylhet city, it is celebrated at Madhabpur and Adampur under Komalganj Upazilla in Moulvibazaar in an even grander manner. Celebrated since 1769, the raash festival has attracted not only the Monipuri community but people from diverse religious backgrounds as well.

Shah Jalal (R)’s death anniversary and wood-cutting festival
The tradition of observing the death anniversary of the great saint Hazrat Shah Jalal (R) with grandeur dates back almost 700 years. This is held at the end of September and early October. Thousands of devotees throng his shrine. Various programmes including those of spiritual music are held. With the vibrant participation of devotees, the city of Sylhet adopts a colourful look. To commemorate the event every year a large number of devotees wrap themselves in red shawls, go to Lakkatura and return to the shrine with some firewood while paying tribute to his soul by singing spiritual songs.

Hason Festival
It is popularly known as the town of the illustrious folk musician Hason Raja, who is equally venerated all over Bangladesh. To commemorate his contribution in Bengali folklore, Hason Festival has been organised in Sunamganj in the December-January period for the last few years

Muharram festival at Prithimpasha
Prithimpasha Jamindar Bari – a feudal palace under Kulaura Upazilla in Moulvibazar – has a rich legacy of nearly 200 years. The huge tarn in front of the palace, aesthetic works on its walls and eye- catching visuals on the mosque allure tourists with an interest in history and culture. As the feudal lords belonged to the Shiite Muslim sect, Ashura has long been celebrated gleefully in this palace. The current successors of the feudal lords still follow this tradition by organising a cultural fair in front of the palace during the first 10 days of the lunar month of Muharram every year.
