Type: Temple
Contributed By: Nayeem


If you come to see “Baro Awliar Mazar” (বারো আওলিয়ার মাজার) in Tetultola, Munshiganj Sadar then after leaving you will turn out to a place called Chowdhury Bari. Here you will see a beautiful but abandoned Hindu Moth named as Chowdhury Bari Moth which was sometimes used as a temple.

The Grave of Twelve Awlia is situated at Mohakali Union in Munshiganj Sadar. The Union Complex is situated at Chowdhury Bazar and the abandoned Moth/Hindu Temple is called Chowdhury Bari Moth.

Munshiganj is a district of many Hindu Moths. Most of them are established near or more than 150 years ago. The moth may be abandoned but the architectural beauty like wall drawing/terracotta is still very beautiful. Another remarkable thing is that there are plenty of birds making the place as their nests. So, almost all the time you will hear birds humming. Parrots are seen rarely in the town area but in Hindu Moths, a lots of Parrots are seen chirping.

How to go

Direct Rickshaw from Munshiganj Sadar to Mohakali Union Parishad, fare is aruond 40 taka.

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.
