Chandpur is famous for its historical and archeological sites. Let’s find out today about the places of interest in Chandpur, the home of the Nagarajas. Nagaraja’s house is in Kashimpur village of Matlab (south) Upazila. At one time it was the headquarters of Narayanpur Pargana.
The five-hundred-year-old Nagraj house has many palaces and installations. The house is famous as Barduari. There is a high monastery here. People say the king’s monastery. Next to it is a small monastery known as Bandir Math. There were two zamindaris on either side of the Boaljuri canal and a battle took place there, between Nagaraja and Darashah.
