Sonargaon can be described as a thriving tourist hotspot particularly due to its mélange of buildings reflecting ancient architectural traditions. One can also easily locate a 5-star luxury hotel in Sonargaon Dhaka around this attraction.
The ancient Sonargaon is located close to popular accommodation such as Pan Pacific Sonargaon Dhaka in Bangladesh. The old course of the Brahmaputra River can also be seen flowing close to this ancient city.
Once known as the City of Panam, Sonargaon was the ruling capital of the Deva Dynasty up until the 13th century. Later on, it was rechristened as Sultanate of Bengal’s second capital and continued under that name until the arrival of the Mughals.
The Mughals have originated in India in 1526 when it was founded by a Turco-Persian leader called Barbur. The Mughals arrived in Sonargaon and it was ruled by the Mughal viceroys for many decades up until Bangladesh was formed in 1608.
