Harishchondro dighi (হরিশ চন্দ্র দিঘী) was made/built by the legendary king Harishchondro for the inhabitants of Rampal Village. It is believed that the water level of this pond remained low along the year but it gets high dramatically during the full moon especially once in a year in the Winter Season. A fair is held here around the place annually. For the local Hindu people, this pond was a sacred place. Hindu’s made some rituals near this pond to set marriage of their unmarried daughters. Now this lake is used by the common people.
From Muktarpur Bus stop of Munshiganj Sadar, you can ride on a Bus or Auto-rickshaw moving towards Dholagaon Bazar or Dighirpar bus stand. This Dighi is just ten-fifteen minutes away from bus stop. You have to inform the helper or driver before reaching Dholagaon Bazar.
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.
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.

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.)  => Array ( [name] => Mohamaya Project [post_id] => 936 [post_link] => http://offroadbangladesh.com/places/mohamaya-project/ [thumb_link] => http://offroadbangladesh.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/Mohamaya-lake-Mirsorai-by-Bd-Explorer-300x191.jpg [post_content] =>
