Shimul Bagan, Sunamgonj
On one side it’s the mountains of Meghalaya, Jadukata river floating in between and the Shimul Garden on the other side. Altogether, it’s a mesmerizing experience to visit Shimul Garden at Shunamganj, Sylhet.
The garden is owned by ex-chairman Mr. Joynal Abedin. Mr. Rakib Uddin, son of Mr. Joynal Abedin, is now taking care of it. The garden covers more than 30 acres and is of square share. The shimul trees are also planted maintaining the square sequence. The specialty of this garden is no matter from which angel you see it, you’ll find the same parallel view of the garden.
First, one need to go to Shunamganj by bus starting from Dhaka. From Shunamganj City, one can hire a motorcycle or a CNG auto rickshaw to reach to Shimul Bagan enjoying the beauty of Shohid Siraj Lake, scenery of Tanguar Haor, and Jadukata River.
