Ghoshal Bari Radha Krishna Temple, About 100 years old (now rebuilt) Radha-Krisna temple with its outstanding view standing at Atpara village. The temple is situated at Atpara under Vajrayoguni Union Parisad of Munshiganj district by the road side leading to Tangibari at a distance of 7.2 km from Munshiganj town. Adjacent to this temple there are two more temples which appear to have been erected recently. It is a ‘Pancha ratna’ temple resting on a square sanctum. Its south-east corner ratna along with large portion of the body is missing. The four turrets are set on the roof top corners while the large fifth central sikhara rises above them the wall of the temple is 63 cm thick. The temple has sharply curved cornices and an arched entrance on the south but its lower portion is in a dilapidated condition. The char Chala central ratna rests upon its rectangular base which has an arched entrance and panel decoration. The south and other sides are relieved with imitation doorway design and paneled bands. The central tapering tower rises above and terminates in an iron shike. The four miniature corner turrets are similar to the central one and have four openings each.This variety is the most popular type of temples that flourished in Bengal in the 19th century A.D.

How to go

It’s very easy to get there at the temple from Tongibari Upazila and Munshiganj Sadar. There are significant numbers of vehicles moving through the village Atpara.

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.
