Walk Bangladesh

Meet the Mystical Lalon


Lalon Shah, the most famous mystic personalities of Bangladesh is regarded as the most important poet of the Baul tradition. He is treated as a saint, mystic poet, song composer, social reformer and secular thinker all rolled into one. The serene shrine is a fascinating peek into the spiritual side of Bangladeshi life. Lalon festival is a five-day folk music extravaganza held in mid-March and mid-October to commemorate Lalon's birth and death.

Detailed Itinerary:

  • Day 0: Leave for Kushtia at night.
  • Day 1: Reach Kushtia at morning. Check-in to the hotel and visit Lalon's shrine after the breakfast. Pay your homage by visiting Lalon Shah's mausoleum. Have your lunch at the nearby restaurants of the shrine. Roam around the places as much as you can. You can join with almost all sadhus and enjoy the mystical Lalon songs. We recommend spending the afternoon and evening at Ayna Mahal, which is adjacent to Lalon's shrine. Lalon practiced and made up his lyrical songs with his companions at this place. We suggest you for a night out at Ayna Mahal/ Shoshan Ghat. This place is full of vigor from evening to early morning. Kushtia has a festive mood at this time. Spend the night at Shoshan Ghat, beside Madhumati river.
  • Day 2: Return to the hotel at morning. Take a sound sleep after the breakfast. Check-out from the hotel. Sadhu bari will be the best place to spend the noon when you wake up. Be there at 1 pm. If you are fortunate, the sadhus will offer their 'Sheba'. Spend the afternoon and evening there. You can bathe in the beautiful pond there. Bid farewell to Sadhus and return to the bus stand at evening. Get on the bus on the same night.
