This is in Panam Nagar (Sonargaon) which was the seat of the Elias Shahi Dynasty at one time. The Jaminder House was built by Hindu Businessmen in the 19th century during British Raj which was more recent than earlier Mughal Buildings.

Restored painstakingly back to original condition.

Our archeology department should restore all the historical structures to their original forms.

Yes this is definitely lime mortar and terracotta brick construction as opposed to concrete construction which was not invented back then.

Testament to the quality of construction as it is still standing despite the high heat and humidity which deteriorates everything.

Stone was not something you could get easily in Bangladesh back in the day.

Thanks for posting this @bluesky bhai. :-)

Bricks and arch-type spans were used in old days. The arch style in the picture is not exactly the same as in a Palace in those days, but the principle is the same.

This bridge arch has a corner/ angle at the top instead of a parabolic or round shape in the palaces. Horizontal beams were not used in those days. They were developed with the improvement of modern design analysis and the invention of steel reinforcing bars/ rods.

Anyway, this is the first time I have seen such a bridge in BD or in any other country.

Bangladesh' new National Data Center in Gazipur near Dhaka is the eighth Tier 4 Datacentre in the world and the second in Asia. The Datacentre was completed around 2018 with technical help from ZTE at a cost of Tk 1,516.91 crore, with a capacity of two petabytes. One petabyte is equivalent to 10 lakh (100 Million) gigabytes. According to the global standard of a Tier 4 data centre, it will remain available 99.995 percent of the time, up from 99.982 percent in the case of a Tier 3 centre. Bangladesh also boasts a Tier 3 facility, for which capacity is near saturation. There are three Tier 4 data centres in the US, two in Spain and one each in Saudi Arabia and Canada. @jamahir bhai I don't know if this information is correct, surely India must have several Tier 4 facilities. And Pakistan as well.

A view in Kashimpur, Moulvibazar (Sylhet Division)


A beel is a billabong or a lake-like wetland with static water in the Northern areas in Bangladesh. Here the rich flora (Lotus and Padam flower varieties) of the local Beel area in Kalukhali, Rajbari is shown...



Fauna too


In the South of Bangladesh, Barisal has the same floral riches. Satla water lily village in Barishal, Bangladesh
