Archaeology is the threshold between the past and the present. Bangladesh is blessed with rich archaeological wealth, especially of the medieval period both during the Muslim and pre-Muslim rules. Unfortunately, many of these are still ignored and unexplored to its potential. The area of archaeological fieldwork and research was not given its due importance for a long time for various reasons, such as are its difficult geography and climate and remoteness from the main centres of the subcontinent. Few field projects are initiated by the Government of Bangladesh in 1971 including exploration of the previous unexplored areas and ambitious scheme of excavations on selected sites. Even after the work at present has very little to do with progression, the discoveries already made have been significant. These recently explored information’s are likely to add to our knowledge about our past, ancient history and her culture. Through promoting heritage tourism, the glorious pride about our past can be instilled in the general mass. Thus, creating awareness, heritage conservation will be done. And through facilitating tourism special attention will be given towards the religious interest of the minority Buddhist in our country.
