During the rainy season, Kishoreganj Ashtagram is a good place to visit. The upazila of Ashtagram is essentially a haor-enclosed upazila. If you want to visit here in the winter, you’ll need to use the waterways. Ashtagram upazila is about 60 kilometres south of Kishoreganj district town.
The Ashtagram Haor is a large wetland surrounded by water with several island-like villages. Here you can see some fishing boats as well as Haor’s villages. While boating in Haor, the houses in the village of Ekhankar look quite lovely.
It’s right next to Hakaluki and Tanguar, which is well-known. The haors cover the whole city of Itna, Mithaimihin of Kishoreganj and Ashtagram, Karimganj’s Nikli, Tarail, and some portions of Karimganj, Netrokona’s Khaliajuri, Habiganj’s Ajmiriganj, and parts of Sunamganj. During the rainy season, vast swaths of land are immersed in water, taking on the form of an ocean. You can go from one haor to another in the rainy season.
In Ashtagram, there is plenty of milk. The cheese is also well-known in this area. Tea and conversation can take a long time. You can now visit the Qutub Shah Mosque. A rickshaw can take you around Qutub Shah Mosque. This mosque has a long history. The mosque is thought to have been built in the late 16th or early 18th century by an elderly Qutb Shah. The five-domed mosque’s craftsmanship is incredible. Even after so many years, the mosque is still in good condition.
