Lakshindar Behular Basar Ghar in Bogra Sadar, Bogra

 

This is one of the greatest archaeological place of Bogra. It is an excavated mound in the village of Gokul. On top of this 5 metre high podium you can see a square temple with a porch. Actually its a Buddhist temple, and it was built for the prayer. This medh fully covered green grass and it looks very beautiful. During the Summer season, nice view from the clouds of sky. Local people believe that this was the "bashor ghor" of Behula Lakkhindar. People come here to see architecture of ancient Bangladesh. Gokul Medh: Also known as Behular Basar Ghar or Lakshindarer Medh, situated in the village Gokul, 3 km to the south of the citadel, off the Bogra-Rangpur road, connected by a narrow motorable road about 1 km. Excavations in 1934–36 revealed a terraced podium with 172 rectangular blind cells. It is dated 6th–7th century. Local mythology associates it with legendary Lakshmindara-Behula. The village Gokul also has several other mound Kansr Dhap has been excavated Having returned to Champak Nagar, Chand Sadagar managed to rebuild his life. A son was born to him. They named the boy Lakshmindara. At around the same time Saha's wife gave birth to a daughter, whom they named Behula. Both the children grew up together and were a perfect made-for-each-other, but when their horoscopes were tallied, it was predicted that Lakshmindara would die of snake-bite on the wedding night. However, as both the children were already devotees of Manasa and were so well matched that the marriage went ahead. In spite of all the precautions, Manasa had her way, one of the snakes, sent by her, killed Lakshmindara. To get back her husband's life from the Gods in the heavens, Behula sailed with her dead husband in a raft towards Heaven. She faced many dangers during her incredibly long and difficult journey. After she pleaded with the goddess, Manasa said, “You deserve to have him back, but this can only be done if you promise to convert your father-in-law to my worship". Chand Sadagar reluctantly agree. Chand Sadagar worshipped Manasa on the eleventh day of the waning moon every month. He could not forgive the goddess for all the suffering he had to go through. He offered her flowers with the left hand and turned his face away from her image. Manasa did not hold anything against him for that. From then on Chand Sadagar and his family lived in peace and prosperity. Chand Sadagar’s status and prestige ensured that the worship of Manasa became generally accepted and respectable Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Behula Google maps: https://goo.gl/maps/8JYGCk1NcYv How to go: Gokul Medh (Lakshindar Behular Basar Ghar) 12 K.M far from Bogra Sathmatha and can directly go by CNG.

Write your ReviewsIf you're from the crowded-city-Dhaka and been feeling like that you need a break, and need to go somewhere for refreshment; however, you're on a tight schedule- then this is the perfect place for you. Moreover, it would also be a really wonderful option for a family outing. Or, going out with your beloved partner. I would highly recommend you people to visit this place before the uncultured people destroy it by leaving the trashes here and there.
