Location Information

To reach the site it is necessary to drive from Dhaka to Mymensingh (this is a good road) then on to Mohanganj (by reasonable road).

You must then drive to the nearest road access (on a poor brick road) and walk for 30 minutes along a raised path through paddy fields to the village of Kulpotak.

A local guide is advisable.

Historical Information

This site contains one 1939-45 war grave. It was originally located at the Birisiri Australian Baptist Mission Burial Ground, Gobindasri, but in 1974 the grave was moved to its present location by the Australian Baptist Missionary Society, who feared that the old site was in danger of being lost to river erosion.
