Path of Glorious Past

Dhaka City Map Sonargaon was a historic city in central Bangladesh. It is one of the old capitals of the historic region of Bengal and was an administrative center of eastern Bengal. It was also a port and trading center. During British colonial rule, mill fabrics merchants built many Indo-Saracenic townhouses in the Panam neighborhood. Sonargaon was central to muslin (world famous local hand-loom fabrics) trade in Bengal. Sonargaon is located near the old course of the Brahmaputra River. Greco-Roman writers mentioned Sonargaon as Sounagoura. The name Sonargaon originated with the ancient term of Suvarnagrama. The Sena dynasty used the area as a base. The Deva dynasty King Dasharathadeva shifted his capital from Bikrampur to Suvarnagrama in the middle of the 13th century. Sonargaon is also one of the possible locations for the fabled land of Suvarnabhumi that is referred in cultures across the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia.
