Three spots of Bangladesh have been declared world heritage sites till now. These are: Somapura Mahavihara (Paharpur Buddhist Monastery of Noagaon), Bagerhat Mosque City and the Sundarbans. The first two sites are parts of world cultural heritage and the rest belongs to world's natural heritage, as the Sandarbans is the largest mangrove forest of the world.

The Mosque City of Bagerhat is a formerly lost city situated in the outskirts of Bagerhat, at the meeting point of the Ganges and Brahmaputra rivers. This ancient city, formerly known as Khalifatabad, according to numismatics, was founded by the warrior saint Turkish general Ulugh Khan Jahan in the 15th century. It was a vast, prosperous city and administrative headquarters once upon a time on this swampy and marshy area. This historic city, listed in Forbes Magazine as one of the 15 lost cities in the world, has more than 50 Islamic monuments in the distinct Bengal variant of Indo-Islamic architecture. This site was declared as a UNESCO world heritage site in 1983. The main attraction is Sixty Dome Mosque (Shait Gambuj Mosque)

Sundarbans, The largest mangrove forest in the world (139,500 ha) which is the home of the most beautiful tiger in the world – the Royal Bengal Tiger - lies on the delta of the Ganges, Brahmaputra and Meghna rivers on the Bay of Bengal. It is considered one of the natural wonders of the world and was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. If you are quite lucky you might see Bengal Tiger on spot which is rare chance. Otherwise you could see a lot of fresh footprints and also you hear the tigers roar. You will enjoy a canal cruise through canals and creeks, trekking in the forest to discover wildlife, biodiversity and its natural beauty.

It is said that Gautama Buddha once came to this region to spread Buddhism. Because of its geographical location since ancient times the entire region of Bengal, including the Somapura Mahavihara has become one of the vital links between India and Southeast Asia. According to the numismatics Sompur Buddhist Bihar was built in the 8th century by the second Pala king Dharmapala (781-821 AD) of Pala Empire. This Great Monastery was a renowned intellectual centre until the 17th century. The monastery is distinguished by its unique artistic achievement. It was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985.
