Is Rajshahi Worth Visiting for Solo Female Travelers?

Rajshahi, located in the north-western part of Bangladesh, is renowned as the “Silk City” due to its booming sericulture industry. Bathed by the holy waters of the Padma River, this cultural hub is a paradise for history enthusiasts, with its spiritual and historical partition-era buildings like the Varendra Research Museum - the oldest museum in Bangladesh housing ancient artefacts, or the iconic Shona Mosque known for its stone engravings. Amidst the vibrant hustle and bustle, Rajshahi’s mango orchards and litchi gardens offer a tranquil retreat in summer, while the Rajshahi University campus, teeming with indigenous and exotic species, has made it the city of gardens and fragrant blooms. Close by, the Mahasthan Garh, an archaeological and historical site reputed as the oldest known city in Bangladesh, stands as a silent testament to Rajshahi’s rich historical past.
