“Fresh fruits and vegetables!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

My purpose was just to get some fresh fruits and vegetables.
Unfortunately my visit was during afternoon hours....the freshness value was low.

Please visit this place on Wednesdays.
Early morning till late evening...on a wednesday, there's "Haat Bazaar". You will get to experience the freshest farm produce possible.

“Where Bangladeshi Civilization Began”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

The area around the village of Mahasthan was probably the earliest centre of Bengali civilization. The whole area is filled with archaeological mounds and many of the exhibits which fill Bangladeshi museums (and antique shops) were dug out of the soil around this little village. For anyone wanting to understand the history of this small but densely populated country, a visit here is a near must. But having said that, this is less of an impressive 'sight' than we expected.

There are dozens of mounds covering a 9 square kilometres, but most of them are still unexcavated and so there is little more to see than a few grassy mounds. The main site around Mahasthan is the Mahasthan Citadel. There are some larger sections of wall here and the foundations of a temple nearby but really there isn't too much to see. The best sight in the vicinity is Gokhul Medh, which should really be listed as a separate attraction.
