A good place to visit specially post covid as there are few people on the spot. Even though we went in a large group. The museum is worth having a look. Even though it could be much more organized.

Although not much remains of the Citadel, the extensiveness of the walls are amazing. You can still see a land gate, a well, and several temples. It's worth a few hours to wander around. Make sure that you also visit the Mazhar of Shah Sultan Balhki in town.

Mahasthan Garh is one of the earliest urban archaeological sites so far discovered in Bangladesh. It was the capital of the Kingdom of the Mourjo, the Gupta, and the Sen Dynasty. The Mahasthan garh shows a wide assortment of relics, going from earthenware objects to gold adornments and coins recuperated from the site.

The village Mahasthan in Shibganj thana of Bogra District contains the remains of an ancient city which was called Pundranagara or Paundravardhanapura in the territory of Pundravardhana. A limestone slab bearing six lines in Prakrit in Brahmi script recording a land grant, discovered in 1931, dates Mahasthangarh to at least the 3rd century BC. The fortified area was in use until the 8th century AD.

Considered the oldest city in Bangladesh, Mahasthangarh dates back to at least the 3rd century BC, and is an easy half-day trip from Bogra. Very few ancient structures remain within this walled complex (Garh literally means fortification), so what you’ll see is essentially an archaeological site consisting of foundations and hillocks, which merely hint at past riches. Over the centuries, the site was home to Muslims, Hindus, and most importantly Buddhists. The Buddhist Pala emperors of North Bengal ruled over this region from the 8th to the 11th centuries and it is from this period that most of the visible remains belong. Amongst the ruins, a few relics still stand tall and command attention, and the rural setting is incredibly peaceful. All in all, it’s a very pleasant excursion.

A Museum called Mahasthangarh museum (“Mahastangor jadughar”) is also located at the mahasthangarh site. The museum is profound with numerous objects (status, coins, weapon, etc.) those are found after the excavation from the archaeological spots around the Mahasthangarh.

You can reach Bogra by bus from anywhere in the country and go to Mahasthangarh by CNG. Mahasthan Garh is located from 15 km North Sathmatha, Bogura.
