Heritage Sites
Bangladesh covers 143,998 k.m area in between the Himalayan ranges and the Bay of Bengal. The G.P.S. is Lat, 26 46N and long 92 41 to 88 02 E. The major part of this vast terrain is formed of river – born new alluvial deposits which are flat in contour while the rest represents smaller sporadic belts formed of older alluvium with a little elevation above the general height of the country. However, at different corners of its length a vast number of archaeological sites and monuments, mostly belonging to the medieval period, are lying at random.

To date only 397 sites and monument have declared protected on priority basis under the provisions of the Antiquities Act (XIV of 1968). There are also two world heritage sites in Bangladesh:
