The Central Cooperative Bank

Type: Building / Skyscraper
Contributed By: Nayeem


The Central Cooperative Bank was established in 1921 during the British Period, under the then British Lord [Lawrence John Lumley Dundas, 2nd Marquess of Zetland]. All the transactions of his area where held and maintained by this bank. From the architectural point of view, undoubtedly this building holds the year old history. It is considered to be the oldest bank in Natore region. The foundation of the bank was laid by The Honorable Nawab Saiyed Nawab Ali Chowdhury Khan Bahadur C. I. E. on 15th February 1921.

The condition of this building is not good, as this years old structure has not been renovated yet and remain forsaken or excluded. Also, the government has not been any precautions to preserve this building. Now, it is being using by local people for some other purposes. The local government authority should take steps to save this historical attraction.

It is located beside the Natore Sadar Hospital; just in the west side of the Sadar Hospital area’s mosque. After reaching at Natore Sadar in Madrasa Mor, take rickshaw to reach Natore Sadar Hospital. After arriving in there, ask any one for the Old Bank.
