Heritage, panoramic beauty of Bangladesh displayedCultural Correspondent
A solo photography exhibition by Md Abdur Rob Dulal, presenting cultural heritage sites, antique artefacts and naturally beautiful places in Bangladesh, is going on at the Alliance Française de Dhaka in Dhanmondi.
Titled ‘Heritage and Panoramic Beauty of Bangladesh’, the exhibition was inaugurated by eminent cultural personality Aly Zaker, on Friday
The photographs, rich in both content and aesthetic, give viewers the discrete charm of unveiling many unknown beauties of our native land. Presenting the details of terracotta of age-old temples, mosques and buildings, to the wide views of the heritage spots, the photography exhibition is Abdur Rob Dulal’s venture to archive ancient cultural heritage sites.
The 50 photographs which are displayed at the exhibition are a select part of the photographer’s vast collection, presented in his book, with the same title as the show.
Spots like Panam Nagar, Paharpur, Moinamati; temples such as Kantajir, Gopal, Krishna, Sonarang Jorbangla; forts like Lalbagh, Sonachanda, Idrakpur; mosques such as Darasbari, Kusumba, Chhota Sona and many others can be seen through the photographs of Abdur Rob.
He told New Age, ‘The ancient cultural heritage buildings and the collection of age-old artefacts have become a part of the world‘s cultural heritage, but we hardly know about it.’
According to him, he has tried to present Bangladesh’s beauty and cultural heritage, to encourage more travellers to come and explore this rich land. He also hopes to sensitise the coming generations to the need for preservation of this unique heritage.
