About Jhikargachha

Jhikargachha, a small village full of crafts and natural beauty, stands on the bank of the Kapotakkho river in Jessore. It is the place where the famous poet and father of Bangla sonnet, Michael Madhusudan Dutta, was born and where he spent part of his life. Jhikargachha is named after the idogo planter Jhinkar. Main attraction of Jhikargachha is to discover an ancient NakshiKantha (a special handmade quilt unique to Bangladesh), which is 130 years old and residing in a 100 years old hut made of soil. Also, the 12th century Rajbari of Mukut Roy at Laujani and the Dargah of GaziKalu are great historical sites to explore. Our craft loving friends will find an ordinary village with enormous things to experience and discover.

Who can ever forget Allen Ginsberg’s famous lines from ‘Jessore Road’? My senses became strong through our journey to Benapole as if I have been here before. It wasn’t a deja vu-was not a vague feeling. The Land of Flowers is the best part of my journey. During the Mid-80s, flower cultivation started emerging among the farmers of Jhikargachha and then gradually spread all over Jessore. In Gadkhali village of Jhikargachha Upazila, a flower bazaar was formed later on. Now, approximately more than thirty thousand flower-farmers of Jessore region are engaged with this bazaar. Each day, flowers worth more than million Takas are being bought and sold over there. For those who live in cities, a relishing and unconventional trip to Jhikargachha may just be the right thing!
