In the 15th century, Isa Khan established the first capital of Bengal at Sonagaon. Meghna in the east and Shitalakshya river in the west used to bring British thankapar from Britain and muslin from the country. Sailing boats used to flock to Shitalakshya and Meghna ghats every day. It was around this time that the commercial activities of the East India Company and the permanent settlement led to the development of a new colonial architectural style inspired by Europe.
During the Indo-Pakistani communal riots of 1965, this settlement of traders was naturally the target of looters. At that time the robbers looted the doors and windows. During the war, many traders migrated to India and Panam became almost depopulated. From that beginning, the city of Panam did not wake up.
