The Golden Temple – Bandarban

Bandarban is home to a fascinating mix of different people. Unlike the majority in Bangladesh many living here are Buddhist, who have built an amazing temple high up in these beautiful hills. The largest in Bangladesh, the Golden Temple is a truly remarkable place.

When I visited in December the weather was perfect, with stunning views reaching for many miles out across the valley below.

Being located in such a remote part of the country this gorgeous temple was all but empty with just a few monks in attendance, leaving the peaceful atmosphere intact.

No matter how many times I walked aound the circular walls I seemed to find fresh, new, ornate and fascinating things before my eyes.
