Bir Kamalar Dighi is situated in the Kakara Union of Chakaria Upazila. Its site was once full of archaeological relics. Mr. Abdur Rashid Siddiqui, in his research work “Rnoai Tatwa”, has made reference to a stone-inscription found on the bank of this tank. It could not be deciphered at that time. At present there is no trace of it. There is a reference of this tank in the “Rajmala”, the history of the Tippera kings. It has been described in the “Rajmala” that a tank was excavated by the Tippera army after it had attacked Roshang and penetrated up to Ramu during the reign of King Dhany Manikya of Tippera in 1513-14 A.D.
From this it can be supposed that the Tippera army had this tank excavated after the conquest of Chakria. It was named Bir Kamalar Dighi after Kamala Devi, wife of King Dhanya Manikya.
This spot is located in Chakaria Upazila. After reaching in Cox’s Bazar City, take local transport to reach that place.
