The Highest point in Bangladesh is Keokradong 1,230 m in Chittagong. So I guess the mountains are around that height.

Yes, the places are in Chittagong, Bangladesh. Some of the places in SE Bangladesh are truly breathtaking, it's sad very few people actually know about those places...

Freedom fighters, their relatives and hundreds of people brought out a candlelight rally at 25 March night commemorating the 'black night' of March 25 in 1971 when the Pakistani military rulers started a massacre on our people, leading to an all-out resistance and the Liberation War.
They vowed to establish a non-communal, truly democratic, and poverty-free nation by driving out all the evil forces that are spreading out militancy and religious fundamentalism in the country.
Marking the 35th black night, they lit 35 torches, which were used to light several hundred candles that the participants held while marching from the Central Shaheed Minar to the killing ground of Jagannath Hall of Dhaka University.

Chittagong Ethnological Museum



Museum in Chittagong that houses culture of 25 ethnic groups

The Chittagong Ethnological Museum, the country’s lone ethnological museum, offers the visitors the chance to acquaint with the lifestyles and heritage of various ethnic groups of the country.
The museum authorities had collected rare elements used in everyday lives of different ethnic groups, of which some had already become extinct while some were on the verge of extinction.
Three galleries of the museum feature diverse elements of 25 ethnic groups, including Chakma, Marma, Tongsinga, Khumi, Murang, Sautal, Garo, Chak, Monipuri, Palia, Tipra, Hajang, Lusai, Shimuji, and Bom while the rest gallery displays the lifestyles of some racial groups of India, Pakistan, and Australia.
The sculptures of the people of different ethnic communities and a piece of broken Berlin Wall draw the visitors especially the children who can get impression of different festivals, livelihoods, and cultures of the communities from the murals set up at the hall room.

Rakhi Roy, research assistant of the museum, said people between 200 and 300 visits the museum every day in addition to a number of researchers from home and abroad.
‘We make arrangements for the school and college students free of cost upon the requests from the institutions, and three to four institutions in the city take this opportunity every month.’
She also informed that there are only two ethnological museums in Asia —one in Chittagong and the other at Tokyo in Japan.
The Chittagong Ethnological Museum established in 1965 remains open to the visitors from 10:00am to 5:00pm except Sunday.

Star Mosque

Star Mosque is an architecturally faultless (Mughal style) five-dome mosque with hundreds of big and small twinkling stars as surface decorations.

The stars have been created by setting pieces of chinaware on white cement. Seen from the front and from far it looks as if shining above the surface of the earth. The inside of it is even more beautiful that the outside, lovely mosaic floor and excellent tiles with many floral patterns set on the walls, are all in complete harmony.

The sitara Masjid was built originally with three domes in early 18th century by Mirza Ghulam Pir, a highly respectable Zamindar of Dhaka.

r u sure this is Shat Gombuj mosque (Bagerhat)??
The last time I went there, it wasnt on a white marble platform and it certainly doesnt have high-rise buildings around it!
