RTB10: Artisans of Bengal – Full day trip to pottery village of 8 hours
ITINERARYLeaving Dhaka in the morning, this tour will start with a visit to the National Martyrs' Monuments in Saver (35 km from Dhaka). In the nearby place Dhamrai, famous for its brass artisans, you can observe the making of various traditional utensils and religious objects. During the Bengali month of Ashar (June – July) the colorful Hindu festival ‘RathaJatra’ takes place here. The large ‘Rath’, similar to a Roman chariot, can be seen throughout the year.
The tour will continue to Nayarhat, where you will leave the vehicle and take a short boat journey to Kakran. Here most villagers are engaged in the pottery trade. The use of clay pots and utensils is gradually decreasing, posing a threat to the traditional livelihood of these skilled artisans.
After having a light lunch at a local restaurant you will head back towards Dhaka. On the way you will stop at the beautiful Jahangir Nagar University campus, famous for the flocks of migratory birds visiting many lakes of the nearby area in winter. We return to Dhaka on the afternoon.
Pottery making activities are closed from 14th April – 14th May.
