Bebud Rajar Dighi (বেবুদ রাজার দিঘী) is a large pond that is located at the Egarosindur Union (এগারোসিন্দুর ইউনিয়্ন) of Pakundia Upazila. Locally this is known as Bebud Rajar Pukur (বেবুদ রাজার পুকুর), more colloquially Bebuiddar Pukur (বেবুইদ্দার পুকুর). It was built by a tribal king named Bebud (বেবুদ). He belongs to the tribe named Koach (কোচ), many people opposed it as tribe Hajong (হাজং).

Myth on Bebud Rajar Pukur:
According to history described by the locals, Bebud (বেবুদ) was a tribal king of Koch tribe (কোচ উপজাতি) from the 16th century. There are several myths/stories are available regarding this king and his pond. During a drought, he dug this large pond to ease the water crisis of his peasants. But unfortunately the pond didn’t filled with water. King Bebud (বেবুদ) saw a dream at night and heard a voice that ordered to sacrifice his wife’s life at the pond to get water on it. He shared this dream with his wife Shompa Rani (শম্পা রানী) and his wife agreed to comply with the order of the dream, but she had a toddler and asked the king about his future. She was worried about his baby’s life.

Next day, during the dream, King Bebud (বেবুদ) saw the dream again and this time he asked about his toddler son. Cause the son was totally dependent on his wife. The voice on the dream assured that the King will be given a magical ring, if he bring this ring on the bank of the pond, his wife will be given back to him only to feed their toddler son. Assuring the safety of their son, the queen went at the middle of the pond at next day and the water started to rise slowly and she was sunken inside the water when a whorl was created around her. Whenever the kid cried from the hunger, the king brought him to the pond and touched the bank with his ring. It conjured the queen back as a form of human and she gave her breast to the baby.
