Zamindar House in Sylhet

It cannot be said that the building built in the style of Mughal architecture is not very noticeable in Bangladesh and it is not very noticeable at all. There is. It goes without saying that the ones that are there are not maintained and cared for. Even after that, due to the changing values ​​and tastes of human society, lifestyle changes, etc., no initiative has been taken to preserve the chronological beauty of the architecture of this country.

I am a travel-loving person, so whenever I hear of an old-fashioned building, I try to turn the opportunity around. I was talking to Saadi Bhai, a customer of my office, about our Mughal architectural building. Saadi Bhai retorted, "If you look only at the pictures of Sylhet in the 64 districts of Bangladesh, you will see that even a decade and a half ago, there were beautiful houses in different parts of the city, now there are multi-storied buildings." Raihan Bhai said, some buildings in Sylhet are still standing; Letting go of our past traditions.

One such building is located in South Surma, Sylhet. Which is now known as Regent Park Resort. I immediately made a plan to go next week. I told my brother Hamid, you have to be my partner. It would be 8 o'clock in the morning and I had to wake up to the call of my mobile phone. I woke up and said I was going to get a new destination; The wait is just for Raihan Bhai. Waiting is the hardest thing to do.

I finally met Raihan Bhai. We went to get a new destination. Our four-wheeler is moving forward, crossing the highway. Over time, we arrived at the old-fashioned palace, now known as Regent Park Resort. Seeing the old-fashioned Chunsurki walls, it seems that I have come to our destination.

The entrance door was opened, I saw paddy fields and ponds. Raihan Bhai said the front door is further in front. I said go down here, walk inside. From a distance I saw the front door of the palace.

Zamindar House in Sylhet


Quiet, secluded environment; No noise. Suryadev's hide-and-seek game through the gaps in the trees. Sand paved ghat at the pond. I saw some people busy fishing with fishing rods. We arrived at the front door. I entered the zamindar house. As soon as I passed the entrance and went some distance, I saw the puja mandapa on the right hand side. Durga Puja used to be performed here, but now it is being used by the resort authorities as a dining room. On the left hand side I saw a pale white building. The past tradition can be understood by looking at the extraordinary craftsmanship.

Zamindar House in Sylhet


I climbed the wooden stairs to the second floor. Each house seems to carry the architecture of the Mughal period. I went a little further and found a wooden two-storied house, which is not there now. I saw mango and litchi in the tree.

Visitors can recall Genghis Khan, Taimur Long, Emperor Aurangzeb, Sheikh Mirza's son Babar, Bahadur Shah, Shaista Khan, Nurullah Khan to the last Sultan of the Lodi dynasty of Delhi. If you walk all the resorts and sit in the Sandani pond, you will feel that the turning of the pages of history is over. While talking to the authorities, some necessary information came to light.

It is heard that all the installations of this resort are hundreds of years old. Built on 25 bighas of land, the resort was once the home of a zamindar. The zamindar's name was Prasanna Kumar Chatruvarti, his father was Shri Padmalochan Chatruvarti. In the year of our liberation war, in 1971, before the war started, their zamindari and all related property were exchanged with Abdul Aziz Chowdhury of Karimganj, the Muslim zamindar of Upper Bengal, for the benefit of the family. The history after this is full of ups and downs.

As time passes, the house becomes depopulated. Like a coyote hanging from a spider's web in an empty house, as it grows older, the Kenno insects, monkeys, bats and many other animals find their way to the corners of the house, some on the roof, some on the branches of trees. Manju Chowdhury, one of the four sons of Zamindar Abdul Aziz Chowdhury, returned to the country one day to see such a lonely and empty house. After returning to the country, they no longer have to stay at home, they have taken up residence in Kumarpara of the city, the name of the house is Karimganj House.

One day he brought two old friends to show him the old house of Bapdada period. And seeing this was the way of dream weaving. Manju Chowdhury soon handed over the bird's nest and termite mounds to his two friends. Mr. Chowdhury's two friends. Fakhruzzaman and Helal Uddin used their hard work and creativity to transform the termite mounds into miniature versions of the Mughal Empire. Named 'Regent Park Resort'. I didn't know how to pass three hours.

The time of our departure has come; We went back to our cottage.
