A trader said, "heavy trading takes place every year particularly centering the two big Islamic festivals, Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Azha." Traders in Baburhat placed orders for clothes with weavers from Pabna, Sirajganj, Shahjadpur, Shivrampur at Dohar & Narsingdi for delivery before Eid. They supply the designs and tell the weavers the numbers of pieces they want, a few months before any occasion.

Chowk Bazar was one of the most famous business and social meeting centers of Dhaka in the Mughal period. Even after 400 years it is still famous as before. It is one of Dhaka's old town market and it formed in the place where other old markets once were. King Maan Singh protested for the country on behalf of Mugal kingdom. In 1602 he transferred the head office in Bawal to the present Central Prison and also the Mughal Durgo, that’s how Chowk Bazar formed.
In 1702, Murshid Kuli Kha named the market "Padosha" or "Badshahi Bazar’. From 1733 to 1734, his son-in-law, Murshid Kuli Kha II, renovated the market. It is thought to have started in Munsil times and for Mursid Kuli Kha the market was established.
In the 18th century, Chowk Bazar was a famous social and business centre. Along with the Historical significance, the geological settlement of this zone also contributed to its massive activities, expansion, population increase, and popularity. The great Buriganga River was just at the South of Chak-Bazar, which contributed easy water transport and thus made trade more frequent and efficient. Sometimes this Chak-Bazar was known as Chak-Port. Chak-Bazar was located in such a way that 10 different other place was connected with Chak-Bazar by straight roads. However the area was not so good-looking.
From 1823 to 1825, Dhaka community’s two men, Dhaka’s Magistrate Dos and Walters wanted Chowk Bazar in the right way and improve the nearby roads condition. For this Dos suggested for the Nawabpur Road to widen as it was linked with Chowk Bazar. The road was very narrow and filled with cottages but there was no improvement by the end of 18th century. Dhaka Community did not give permission but Walter got permission later. He removed all illegal markets in Chowk Bazar and made a 460 ft length, 4 ft high and 1/2 ft thick wall surrounding it. In front of Chowk Bazar there was Moriom's Canon 'Kaman'. It was in Shoari Ghat before. Not only that, he also widen the way from Chowk Bazar to Islampur.)  => Array ( [name] => Gobindaganj Misty Potti [post_id] => 7283 [post_link] => http://offroadbangladesh.com/places/gobindaganj-misty-potte/ [thumb_link] => http://offroadbangladesh.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/DSC08721-300x225.jpg [post_content] =>

This is one of the oldest markets of old Dhaka. This century-old market was in its full bloom after the liberation war. Later, other markets entered the arena and split the business. The number of shops increased and changed the modes of transportation- from manual boats to steamers and trucks. Here, profit has various natures. Wholesalers and importers maintain the natural economics of selling at higher prices than the procurement cost where as, the storehouse owners' profit come from commissions.
At the bank, you shall see the green vegetables are taking down from the boats which were brought from the other side of the river. At the same time, some boats are crossing the river with goods. It’s a nice view to watch the whole nature and the activity of the people.
You shall find many storehouse at the Shyam Bazar area. Especially those are for garlic, onions, dry red chili etc. When you shall walk through the storehouse, you shall get a sharp smell of those spices at your nose. But be careful when you are passing beside the dry chili area.
Also you shall find there are some battle leaf's (pan) warehouses too. By using the Buriganga River, these goods are carried here to fulfill the demand of the Dhaka city people. People are too hospitable, and always keen to assist you if you need.) )
