Padmahema Dham A Place At Munshiganj
Padmahema Dham which is locally known as Baul Bari. In a short time, if you want to go for a walk or camping near Dhaka, you can go from Lalmon’s Akhra Padmahem Dham in Balur Char village of Sirajdikhan Upazila of Munshiganj. Listening to Lalon Akhra, many may wonder when did Lalon enter Munshiganj? Saiji’s philosophy has come here, not Saiji’s. Kabir Hossain Bhai, a renowned photojournalist of “Prothom Alo” magazine, has built this arena of Lalon Prem, where Sadhusang is held every year. Besides, any traveler can take shelter at any time and can spend two days on the banks of the slow-flowing Ichhamati. The place is surrounded by trees, full of birds, chirping. There is an open field next to it, and the magical Ichhamati river flows beside it.
Most of the time in the river you can see a group of Vedas floating in a boat. Maybe the philosophy of human love is here and someone takes refuge in love.
In the case of installation, there is a living room in the traditional wooden two-storied house of Munshiganj, Lalongeeti Vidyalaya. There is Battala and there is Mayavara, a shadowy environment that creates a different atmosphere in the soul. The most enjoyable time of sunrise and sunset at Padmahem Dham. As soon as Ichhamati came here, she took three words on all three sides, which created a wonderful estuary.
