Dighapatiya Rajbari, now known as Uttara Ganobhaban, is located about three kilometers north of the district town of Natore. Uttara Ganobhaban is the local office and residence of the Prime Minister of Bangladesh in North Bengal. To see Uttara Ganobhaban, permission of the district administration is required.
Rani Bhabani Naib of Natore was pleased with Dayaram Roy and gave him the gift of Dighapatiya Pargana. Here he built several palaces. Surrounded by a lake and a wall on an area of about 43 acres, the palace has 12 buildings, large and small. The remains of King Prasannath are on the south side of the Kumar Bhavan and the guest house. In the main palace building there is the king's throne, the armor and the sword. Inside the royal palace is a garden decorated with sculptures collected from Italy. The entrance of Uttara Ganobhaban has a four-storied pyramid-shaped entrance. And at the top of it is the centennial clock of the Coke and Television Company of Britain.
There are many rare species of trees including Neelmanilata, Haparmali, Parijat, Raj-Ashoka, Saurabhi, Camphor, Licorice, Haimanti, Peyali, Banapulak, Tarajhara, Senuti, Madhabi, Sycamore. In front of the entrance, the first thing you can see is the huge moat on the right, which surrounds the entire palace. A little further left is the public works office, the car garage of that time. There are rose gardens, huge fields. The two-storey yellow building here is the Kumar Palace, the ground floor of which was used as a torture cell. There is a one-storey tehsil office. And there are four cannons of that time. There is a huge palace. A sculpture of Zamindar Dayaram in the garden adjoining the palace reminds him.
The 'Italian Garden' is the most significant part of the Uttara Ganobhaban. The garden is so named because Dayaram brought various furniture from Italy. There are five marble statues, fountains and benches. The benches, however, were brought from Calcutta. The trademark 'Kolkata' will not escape your eyes. One arm of the statue titled ‘Daughter of the Hills’ is broken. There was looting here in 1971. This wrist was bound with gold. At that time the Pakistani soldiers broke his arm and looted the gold

Where to eat
Islamia Panchur Hotel is a very good place to eat for a small amount of money. The food at Nayan Hotel near the railway station a little further away is not bad either. However, whatever you do, it is not wrong to eat and bring raw golla. Also don't forget to visit Natore Rajbari, Puthia Rajbari, Sugar Mill and Chalanbil. It's fun when you go out to eat with friends and this place on Khilgaon Road No. 442 is named after a very beautiful hotel. You will find a variety of expensive food from the environment of this place. This food was one of them. In this mild cold, playing hot tandoori and salty fry is not bad. Today we went to eat a plate of 4 people from The Kebab & Q in Khilgaon with 4 friends.The platter consisted of rice, chicken tandoori, chicken jhal fry, chutney, salad and lachchi for 4 people. Although the chutney salad wasn’t photographed to come a little later and we took coke instead of lachchi, The amount of rice was quite good for 4 people. And the rice was also quite neat, which you can understand at least a little bit in the picture. And the chicken tandoori was marinated very well, which made it great to eat and also very good in size. There was also a salty fry. There were 4 pieces of meat for 4 people. And there was a lot of salt. In that case I like to eat with rice.
All in all, I like it at this price. But it takes a while to serve their food.

Here are some of the popular dishes that I have highlighted. These dishes are available in different parts of Bangladesh including Dhaka. These dishes are very tasty and comfortable to eat. Being very close to the workplace, Kindred is a very popular place for coffee. But nothing else was tried. On the pretext of coffee, it became an impeccable food talk to quench the hunger of the evening.
I ordered Chicken Chaomin, Nepali Momo, Potato Eyes and Coffee. There is nothing to say about potato wedges. It was very regular. A crisp feel should come in the mouth butt. Not at all disappointed but not hopeful. In Potato Wage, my friend turned around and told me to eat Kindred's Chaomin. So the excitement was all about Chaomin. As soon as I served it at the table, my mind was filled with just seeing it. It will be eaten empty without any words. A mix of chicken, cauliflower, broccoli, capsicum, and more vegetables. It was very tasty. The last level test was not over. Best of all I was able to fill each vegetable and chicken separately Chicken Chaomin, hope you like it, Momo was very tasty. I put the first momo in my mouth without sauce, it was very good. The outer layer and the inner stuffing are both up to the mark. That sauce was with Mom. I didn't like it so much. After the price of 113 smoked coffee cups came in front, Just Smell and Feel the Aroma. Aha. Just a word about coffee. Real Coffee Bean's Test of Real Coffee with Mindful Aroma. I eat cappuccino all the time. It feels good to eat every time. Today someone is the same. Try it. Also ate chicken strip roll, chocolate donut, chicken curry bun the day before. All was well. Just wow, I ate because the environment inside is very beautiful. There is a positive vibe. Everyone's use is very good and very sincere. Hope you like it someday. People who are fond of food usually like this kind of food more. They don't think about the price at all. Hopefully you will like this kind of food too and if you like it, please like and comment.
