Sufism in Bangladesh

by hugobaur

Do you know of any Sufi brotherhoods in Bangladesh, their locales and when they congregate. I shall be visiting Bangladesh soon and would like to visit a Sufi khanegah while in the country.
Thanks!

Re: Sufism in Bangladesh

So good to see you back Jen...I'm proud of you for sticking to your guns. I'm glad that there's someone else here that doesnt believe that crap like that belongs on this "family" forum! ( I almost said "kiss this!" and bagged it myself. I hope you can put your pages back on without too much trouble.

Regarding the Sufis...

The biggest concentration of Sufi communities is between Comilla and Chittagong, southeast of Dhaka. I sat next to a Sufi "ascetic" in a highway roadside eatery around them parts. Don't remember where it was exactly, but the biryani was tasty. Stop off at any village around there and ask around.

Have a great time in Bangladesh.

I believe the roadside inn you mention could very well be "Noor Jahan". I love the place and never travel down that highway without stopping for a bite to eat. I have even stayed the night there before.

Travel Tips for Dhaka

Drik Photo Agency

by mafi_moya

Dhaka is not really the place you'd expect to find one of the world's best up-and-coming photo agencies (surely they should be in Paris or somewhere?!) but here they are anyway!

'Drik' is a Sanskrit word meaning 'vision' and it has established itself as probably the major picture library and collective of photographers dealing with the 'majority world' - usually known in disparaging terms as the Third or Developing world - where a huge percentage of the world lives yet gets very little media coverage.

Drik has done some great work with social issues and human rights in Bangladesh and elsewhere, but of most interest to VT readers is probably their incredible photos. One of the founders, Shahidul Alam, also chairs the World Press Photo jury, one of the biggest prizes in international photo-journalism.

So to see some great pics of Bangladesh, and elsewhere in the world, you can check out a small sample of their work at www.drik.net

This ain't Kanas!

by Rimbaud810

Dhaka is anything but "like home." That was one of the things that I found very exciting when I first arrived in Bangladesh in August of 2002. Everything there is different, for better or worse! People will constantly stare at foreigners. Woman can't wear shorts or short skirts without attracting a massive amount of attention. There are cows, rickshaws, buses, and people everywhere. At least you will never feel alone! Luckily, most people on the street are friendly and fascinated to see a "bideshi", or foreigner.

Dhaka is off the beaten track,...

by budapest8

Dhaka is off the beaten track, in fct so is the whole country. I always wanted to go to Cox's Bazaar down the coast, but too far when you have only 45 minutes before your connecting flight takes off.

SHOPPING IN THE ANTIQUE...

by Gnome

SHOPPING IN THE ANTIQUE MARKETS
As Dhaka is the capital of Banglasdesh, it does have a few good shops that sell antiques, mainly from old ships that have ended up in the shipbreaking graveyard. Some of the items in these shops are quite interesting and you may even find something worth keeping as a souvenir of Bangladesh. However, most of the stuff is really heavy, so make sure you have plenty of room in your baggage.

Sculpture Against Terror

by travelife

This sculpture installed on TSC roundabout, Dhaka University was funded by private donors and overseen by a left wing student organization to make a point against political violence among the student activists, a serious problem among the public universities in the country. The sculpture is dedicated to a student killed by political violence.
