Panam City at Sonargaon, Narayanganj.
Mar 2021
Panam City is situated at Sonargaon, Narayanganj in Bangladesh. It is an ancient historical city in Bangladesh.
Before going there i went through internet and came to know following. Among our travel mates very few one knew anything about it. So i bacame the hero when i share following information to them. Please read.
i) Among the three cities of Boro nagar(Big City), Khas Nagar, Panam Nagar, it was the most attractive city.
ii) There are many historical buildings which were built centuries ago and those are related with the history of Baro-Bhuyan.
iii)It covered 20 km area of Sonargaon. Panam City is one of the most visited tourist spots in Bangladesh.
My Suggestions:
i)Entry fee should be much higher to keep the value of the place.
ii) Most of the people go there to pick pictures. If some professional photographers appointed there from govt. like Tajmohol or other historical places, Govt. can generate revenue from there
iii) There are places which are showing risky. But people can easily enter there. It should be stopped

Reminiscenceof Bengal Glory
Jan 2021
One of the twelve land lords(baro Bhuiyan) Issa khan ruled Bengal in 16th century . He made Sonargaon as the capital of Bengal . Panam was one of the most beautiful city of Bengal in that period.The city was built on twenty acres of land .Basically it was a city of traders . They import from Europe normal cloths and export Muslin .The ruin tells the tale that the city was well planned and well organized . There are two canals and five ponds . Some of the houses had deep well as source of water .The houses were mostly two storied buildings made of bricks. Though some of the decoration were done with iron hardly any iron rods were used in beam and column . But used to make roof . Currently 52 ruined houses are there . Some of them are on the brink of collapse .Withered exposed houses bear sign of centuries ,the wealthy inhabitants, But time took away all . Only the skeleton remained in the abandoned houses . During 1965 war between India and Pak the city was plundered and again in 1971. At one stage govt leased these houses but in 2006 it was cancelled . Now it is under Archeological dept .
The city is 24 Km from city center connected by public transport . Sunday is closed and on Monday visiting hour is from 0130 PM. Since no standard hotel is available around ,visitors are advised to carry pack lunch in case of long day program..

A Trip into History
Dec 2019
Check out the webforms details of the history...... What an interesting trip and a fantastic photographic opportunity for historical architecture. Well worth the effort to get to and spend some time. There are vendors that can supply food ...the coconut man is particularly nice. Bangladesh is an amazing place I encourage you to study the history .

A Walk Through the Past
Dec 2019 • Friends
The well preserved main street in Sonargaon has over 50 remaining houses in various states of repair. The architecture is beautiful and varied. It almost looks like it was purpose built as a movie set but this is the real deal. It's very rare that you find a collection of buildings all built at the same time providing a window to the past.

Stunningly beautiful
Jan 2020 • Couples
This is a beautiful place to visit. The old building facades are spectacular and seem so different to modern day Bangladesh. Nature is creeping in and taking over some of the houses but it adds to the magical appearance.
We were lucky enough to be taken inside one of the safer buildings and walk around it. The stained glass windows and tiled floored ballroom showed the grandeur.

Wow wow and wow! Highlight of my trip!
Nov 2019
I was looking forward to Panam Nagar and it totally exceeded my expectations. Beautiful street of old abandoned homes and houses. Rightly so it's a bit eerie but in a beautiful way. The architecture is stunning - each one different. Highly recommend. There is no information around.

This deserted historic town has a very eerie feeling about it - but the buildings are really interesting and the site is very easy to get around - well worth a visit.

Abandoned and atmospheric... Definite visit
Oct 2019 • Solo
Historic Old capital city. Real sense of past splendour and decay. Very atmospheric but no information to bring it to life. Has to be said Bangladesh isn't set up to exhibit its treasures but once you see that and enjoy it for what it is, this is a great find. Definite destination you should make time to visit while you are in Dhaka.
