Boshder Benami Moth

Type: Temple
Contributed By:


A significant number of Hindu Moth is found in all over the Bangladesh. Some of those are still standing with great structural strength and some are decaying day by day. Boshder Benami Moth is one of those, a nearly destroyed Hindu Moth which is around 200 years old.

It’s assumed that Bosder Benami Moth was built by some great Merchant named ‘Bosh’ located just beside the Bosder Jamidar Bari.

Now, It’s almost being griped by a gigantic banyan tree which has caused severe damage to the exterior & interior of this structure. If it goes like this way, then it will totally being destroyed in near future.

Necessary steps should be taken for immediate conservation and preservation of this structure.

How to go

At first you have ride on a bus moving toward Betka from Dhaka. After crossing Sirajdikhan bazar, you have to step off at Malkhanagar Chourasta. And then move toward the north from Bazar.

How To Reach: Munshiganj District

There are several transport is available from Dhaka to Munshiganj. The bus services are “Nayan Paribahan”, “Dighir par Paribahan” and “Dhaka Transport”, all of the buses used to start from “Gulistan” of Dhaka. It will cost you 60-80 taka, and will require 1 hrs to 2 hrs bus journey depending upon the road traffic.

Also you can hire CNG auto rickshaw from the “Postogola”, and it will take you 250-350 to take you at Muktarpur bridge. Remember, if you are hiring CNG, make sure who will provide the toll of the bridge. For you information, the toll fee is 20 taka. So negotiate with the driver of CNG about who will provide the toll.

Where to Stay

Though the district is just beside the Dhaka, still its hard to find a suitable hotel from the district. The main reason, may be people from dhaka used to come this place for a single day trip. But anyway, if you need to stay at Munshiganj town, that case I’ll suggest you to stay at “Hotel Comfort” this one is the best from the town. Also you there is another one which is “Hotel three star international”. But the quality of the rooms of this hotel is not that much good. For both cases, it will take 100-700 taka per night depending upon the room.
