Comilla Shalban Bihar and Museum
Shalban Buddhist Monastery is one of the ancient civilizations of Bangladesh. The monastery is located in the middle of Lalmai hill near Bird in Kotbari of Comilla district. The monastery was named Shalban Bihar as there was once a dense forest of Shal-Gajari around the monastery. Although this monastery is similar to Paharpur Buddhist monastery, it is small in size. During the construction of a road in the present Kotbari area at the end of 185, the ruins of a building were uncovered. The ruins discovered at that time were presumed to be a fort. Nalini Kant Bhattasali, the principal of the Dhaka Museum, visited the area in 1917 and while conducting a search of the area, decided to call the ruins the Pattikera Nagar, surrounded by the copper fort (thirteenth century AD) of Ranbangkamall Harikela Dev and the monastery. There are a total of 155 rooms in Bihar. It is believed that Buddhist monks lived and practiced religion here. In front of the room is a 7.5 feet wide porch and low walls at its end. There are three niches on the wall of each room where in the past idols or oil lamps etc. were kept. On the other hand, the hall, built on four sides of walls and four huge round pillars in front, is believed to have been the dining room of the monks. The size of the hall is 10 meters by 20 meters. There is a wide brick road on all four sides of the hall. Archaeological excavations at various times have uncovered eight copperplate inscriptions, about 400 gold and silver coins, and numerous burnt earthen plates or terracotta, seals, bronze, and earthenware statues.
