Bogra: Givinda vita at Mahasthangarh

Friday, 28th May 2010

Govinda Vita is another archaeological spot from the great Mahasthangarh of Bogra. This is also at Shibganj, and just opposite of the Mahastangarh Museum. This one is also close at Sunday, and open for other days from 9:00 to 5:00. During summer time, the closing time extends for one hour.

This is situated just beside the famous river Korotoa of Bogra. Once upon a time it was a giant river, but day by day its becoming so narrow that you may feel its a canal.

From the excavation, some important antiquities discovered at Govinda Bhita that includes cast copper coins, silver coins, NBP wares, terracotta female figurines with sunga affinities, terracotta seal bearing Brahmi script and semi precious stone beads.
