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.)  => Array ( [name] => Vatodara Shiv Mandir [post_id] => 17660 [post_link] => http://offroadbangladesh.com/places/vatodara-shiv-mandir/ [thumb_link] => http://offroadbangladesh.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/Vatodara-Shiv-Mandir2-300x225.jpg [post_content] =>
Vatodara Shiv Mandir (ভাটোদাড়া শিব মন্দির) is located in Dighapatia near the Dighapatia Rajbari. This temple was established near a 100 years ago, as the local says. Whereas, Vatodara Kalibari, mainly uses for worshipping in various occasions, was built recently. In various occasions like Durga Puja or Kali Puja, people from Hindu religion of this locality greatly celebrate their rituals here. Although, Vatdara Shiv Mandir remains almost dysfunctional and out of care, people of the area largely come and worship in Kalibari.)  => Array ( [name] => Fegnasar Shiva Temple [post_id] => 9298 [post_link] => http://offroadbangladesh.com/places/fegnasar-shiva-temple/ [thumb_link] => http://offroadbangladesh.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/Fegnasar-shib-1-169x300.jpg [post_content] =>
Fegnasar Shiva Temple (ফেগুনসার শিব মন্দির) was built in the reign (1159-1185 AD) of great King Bollal Shena. Another conception said, it might be built between 1725-1758 AD during the reign of King Raj Bollov. In course of time, it was on the way to destruction. Then, Moharaja Raj Bollov took some initiative to reconstruct that. It can not be assured who particularly built that temple. King Ballav was a great devotee of Shiva.
This temple is in rectangular shape at base,measuring 15 feet length,10 feet width and about 25 feet high from the ground. Very common constructing material like bricks, cement and limes being used to build that temple. At the last day of full moon night in every Bengali month of Falgun, there is a large festival of worshiping being held here.
There are so many stories being populated among common people about the builder of that Temple. Inside the temple, there is a large "Shiva Lingha" (শিব লিঙ্গ) (Phallus) placed. According to the local people, this is the largest phallus brought from South India (not true at all,because largest one is located at Faridpur District). Just about 100 meter away, there is a branch of Dhaleswari river flowing.
This place is sometimes locally mentioned as Raypura Mondir)  => Array ( [name] => Radha Gobindo Temple [post_id] => 8789 [post_link] => http://offroadbangladesh.com/places/radha-gobindo-temple/ [thumb_link] => http://offroadbangladesh.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/IMG_20150520_122959193_HDR1-300x169.jpg [post_content] => Radha Gobindo temple (রাধা গোবিন্দ মন্দির) is one of the most ancient temples in Munshiganj. Local people are barely familiar with the name of this temple. Even the temple's land owner doesn't know the actual name of this temple. So, we had to make people understand the nature of this temple to find it out. After finding the temple, we came to know that this temple is familiar with the name Binoy Shadhur Mandir (মন্দির) rather 'Radha Gobindo' temple. It's to be mentioned that Binoy Shadhu is taking care of this temple for long 80 years. He said, he was 120 years old. He along with his Shadhu named 'Mongola Rani Das' discovered this temple. It was very hard to find out the real time period of this temple. Interviewing local people and Binoy shadhu, we could assume that it might be a thousand year old temple, which is very near to destruction. A big banyan tree has grown through the middle of this temple. Every Bengali year, people arrange a fair in the month of Chaitro (চৈত্র). Basically, Chaitro Shonkrantir Mela (চৈত্র সংক্রান্তির মেলা) is a common festival in Bangladesh. In this event, Binoy Shadhu used to show some magic which has a long time Spiritual recognition to the normal people around there. ) )
