his morning after seeing the tomb of SM Sultan we reached Gopalganj district after a long journey. The journey was not comfortable at all as we had to take a few old local buses on several occasions. Although the quality of local buses in Narail was not good, the quality of local buses in Gopalganj was quite good. Just as the highway was wide and comfortable, there was ample space inside the bus. After visiting the Court Mosque in Gopalganj, we proceeded to Bangabandhu's mausoleum in Tungipara.
We reached Tungipara in 30 to 35 minutes by bus from Gopalganj city. As the road was empty on Saturday, there was no crowd at the mausoleum. It was as if we were the only visitors to the tomb, although after a while a few visitors joined us. Only five to six tourists were present at the time.
Although there were clouds in the sky, the day was sunny so everything could be seen well. There is no entrance fee to enter the mausoleum. We had to take shelter under a roof as it rained for 20 to 30 minutes after entering the tomb. Then we toured the exhibition gallery of the mausoleum where pictures of different periods of Bangabandhu's life are being displayed. There is also a library here. Next to the library there is an open stage with a visitors gallery.
As the distance from the gallery to Bangabandhu's grave was more, we left after the rain stopped. The tomb is covered with excellent architecture. At this time some people were seen reciting the Holy Qur'an. Although everyone is allowed to go to the grave, it is forbidden to take pictures here.
After visiting the mausoleum, we stop for a while at some of the chatpati and phuchkar shops located there. Since we didn't have any money to buy, we bought some snacks so that we could spend some money and get some rest.
There is a huge paddy field next to the tomb. Due to the rainy season, the paddy field was under water. At that time the sky was full of clouds and nice wind was blowing. Although we wanted to stay here for a while longer, we did not have the opportunity to go to the next destination, Arpara Munshibari
