Editorial 9

Welcome to the 9th Issue of the Travelogue. The Travelogue marks the sense of sacrifice and discipline that is cultivated through the observance of Eid-ul-Adha, the second biggest festival of the muslim community. We hope this Eid will bring us a learning experience about practicing sacrifice, compassion and kindness together with maintaining cleanliness in our respective areas. We'll also try and keep our tourist spots as clean as possible.

Zamindar Bari's of Manikganj

The district of Manikganj, named after a certain sufi saint Manik Shah is a place of spectacular natural beauty and rich cultural legacy. On the other hand, the etymology of the word ‘Manik’ suggests ‘a significant place or a place of treasure’ as in Bengali it is equivalent to Ruby; and ‘Ganj’ means a trading place where valuable things are bought and sold. Bounded by rivers like Padma, Dhaleshwari, Kaliganga, Ichamati and Gajikhali; its well-established water-transport system and fertile land has always attracted people from near and far; for example Mughals, Pathans, rulers from Pala and Sena dynasty. They left their marks in magnificent monuments and edifices. But often they are left abandoned, misused or weathered by disaster. Some disappeared along with their legendary stories.
