We also will visit the pottery village. Pottery, which is one of the oldest human inventions, originated before the Neolithic period but Bengal pottery appeared around 1500 BC. In an alluvial country like Bengal, fine clay is a distinctive geological feature. In this village, you can see different types of vases, bowls, basins, jars, dishes, and many different types of kitchen utensils. On the way back you will visit National Martyrs’ Memorial (Jatiyo Smriti Soudho) which is built to pay homage to those who sacrificed their lives during the liberation war in 1971.
