Somapuri Vihara
Bangladesh,

Somapuri Vihara, built in the 8th century, was once the largest Buddhist monastery south of the Himalayas. This is without a doubt the most outstanding landmark in Bangladesh, covering an area of 11 hectares. Despite the fact that the monastery is in a dilapidated state, one can easily imagine the plan of the temple complex, which includes a huge quadrangle, on the sides of which there are monastic cells, and inside there is a courtyard. The tallest building in the courtyard is a dilapidated two-meter stupa. The walls of the monastery are decorated with well-preserved terracotta bas-reliefs, and in a small museum there are household utensils and religious objects found during excavations.
