Lamarpara Khyang

Type: Monastery
Contributed By: Nayeem


Lamarpara Khyang is located on the bank of the Bakkhali River that flows past the Fatekharkul union of Ramu Pourasova, 1 km. south of Ramu Chowmohony Bus-station. The Lamarpara Kyang was built in the first decade of the 19th century by Mr. Thu Aung Gyaw Chowdhury, one of the celebrities of Ramu. The brass image of the Lord Buddha set up on a marble pedestal inside the temple is the second biggest of its king in Bangladesh, the image of the Lord Buddha unearthed in the palace of Bhoj Raja in Comilla being the biggest one.

The artistry of all the structures of the temple complex made of Burma-teak is likely to elate one with wonder. Almost all the Kyangs are of the same pattern and house hundreds of big and small images of the Buddha. There are about twenty three such Khyangs in Ramu only. Except Kutubdia, there are such Kyangs in all other thanas of the district. The Bara Khyang or the big Khyang of Haitopi deserves special mention.
