The Historical Pocha Dighi & Ghora Dighi

These two ponds have a historical and religious importance to the villagers. There is a story with the pond that I came to know when personally I reached there. There are some crocodiles in the pond, which never do harm to their visitors even if you touch them.

So many people used to come everyday in a way to make their wish fulfilled. As a result they used to give so many gifts. The belief of them is so high with that. I came to know that this is not just prejudice. So many wish have already been fulfilled.

There used be a fair in almost everyday. You can get different types of items from there. The area will get so much attraction because of these things.

The both ponds are very much interesting in a point of view that these ponds were dug so many years ago but still they are just like as it were many years ago.

The summer still can’t dry it all together. I think you must visit the place.

Getting In:

Bagerhat district is bounded by Gopalganj District and Narail District on the north, The Bay of Bengal on the south, Gopalganj District, Pirojpur District and Barguna District on the east and Khulna District on the west.

Main rivers of the district are Panguchi, Daratana, Madhumati River, Pasur River, Haringhata, Mongla River, Baleswar, Bangra and Goshairkhali. You can go to there from Dhaka using bus. It is almost 430km away from the main town of Dhaka.

Not only that you can also go to there by using plane. The plane will land in Jessore. Then from there you can take a transport & then make a trip to Bagerhat. Not only that you can also go there from Rajshahi, Khulna. From Khulna you have to make a very short trip but if you are going from Rajshahi then there is a huge journey ahead of you. But when you will reach there seeing the beauty you will forget all your sufferings that sure.

After you reach there you have to make a short trip to reach there. But don’t be tensed there is always accommodation for this. So you don’t have to be panic.

As this is one of the most touring places of the district so there have been many hotels in the area. So you don’t have to work so hard to get a hotel. The hotel management is very good here. You can get different types of hotels here. If you want less priced hotel then you will get it & if you want good hotels then there is also no problem. Some of the hotels name is included here-

Hote Disha at Main road, Bagerhat.

Hotel Star at Main road.

The food management is also very good. You can get different types of food items there. It won’t be a great problem to find a suitable restaurant for you to eat. The foods are also very delicious. You can get foods also from the resident hotel where you are staying. I think to taste different food items of different restaurant will be a good idea. I am telling from my prospective view that you will enjoy the food.

The transportation medium in the town is Rickshaw. You can also get van there. The quantity of this type of transportation medium is high in the city. So you don’t have to wait to get that. The rent of them is also not that high so with cheap rate you can travel a bit.

The area will give you a lot of pleasure. You will not feel to leave the city. Believe me it will remove the monotonous type of life & will give you a fresh life.

So I think it will good not to delay & make a trip there as soon as possible & make you feel lot better than you were feeling before visiting the place.

    Probably, a mistake has occurred.The crocodiles can be found only at thakurdighi,not at pocha dighi or at ghora dighi.Please ascertain the fact.
