Cox's Bazar is the longest beach in the world

Cox's Bazar, the world's longest beach, stands with its natural beauty. A large number of tourists flock to Cox's Bazar every year because of the ancient traditions and sights around the 120 km beach. And not just the beach, there are several places to visit as well. The vast expanse of sand on the horizon, rows of black clouds, small and large waves lapping at the beach, the activity of fishermen with boats and trawlers, the sun coming out like a bronze plate from behind the eastern hills in the morning sky, and the magical form of the sunset in the evening is all the beauty of the country. Cox's Bazar is the world's longest continuous beach on the southeast coast. If any tourist from the country or abroad travels inside Bangladesh, it will be seen that the name of Cox's Bazar comes first. Due to a lack of proper information and lack of a good travel plan, many of us do not make our trip to Cox's Bazar 100% worthwhile. From the city of Cox's Bazar to the place called Badarmokam, the main place of the beach is 120 km long. If you want to go to Cox's Bazar, the distance of Cox's Bazar from Chittagong city to the south is 152 km and its distance from Dhaka is 414 km. The capital Dhaka can be reached by road and air. Meanwhile, you can go directly to Cox's Bazar from Dhaka by bus. Also from Dhaka by train to Chittagong, then Cox's Bazar by bus. So both trips will be here. In addition, each bar will have a unique flavor. It is heartbreaking to see huge waves on Cox's Bazar beach. And if you lose your balance while taking a bath and get hit by the waves, life becomes the realm of death. At Kalatali and Labani Point, there are many small and big shops including an oyster market where shopkeepers wait for tourists with various goods. And there are several restaurants on Kalatali Beach. But there are restaurants everywhere. Most of them are along the main roads. 

History of Cox's Bazar:

The original name of Cox's Bazar is Palangki. An officer named Captain Hiram Cox came here in 1799 and established a market. And after his name it came to be known as Mr. Cox's Bazar and later Cox's Bazar.

Ramkot Tirtha Dham: It is situated on the top of the hill next to Ramkot Banashram. Established in 901 Bangla Sun. It is said that Rama-Sita stayed at this Ramkot during their exile. Apart from the temple, there is a small meditating Buddha statue in a separate Buddhist monastery. Legend has it that the statue was erected during the reign of Emperor Ashoka as a testament to the peaceful coexistence of the two religions.

Chengkhaib Cang: Chengkhaib Cang (Buddhist Vihar) is located on the banks of the Bankkhali River in Srikule, Rampur. This Buddhist monastery is decorated with variously designed seats and more than 10 white stone idols preserved in brass and glass vessels.

It is said that during the rule of Kana Raja (one-eyed blind) of the Mugha community, someone built this tunnel for self-defense.

Mathins Well: Novelist Dhiraj Bhattacharya was transferred to the Teknaf police station as an SI in the early 19th century. At that time Teknaf Mathin, the only daughter of Rakhine Zamindar Wangthin, used to regularly come to draw water from the well in front of Mathin police station. Mathin's hobby was to fetch water in the morning and afternoon. That police officer used to sit on the balcony of the police station every day and watch Apurba Sundari Mathin bring water. Gradually Mathin falls in love with Dhiraj Bhattacharya and later turns in love. Unable to marry, Mathin burned to death in the heat of separation. Mathin's Coop is a silent witness to Mathin's history of unsatisfied love. The location of this well is in Teknafthana Square. Eminent journalist Abdul Quddus Rana took the initiative to renovate the well made of bamboo in 1994. Later it was renovated from the Zilla Parishad. Now the well looks very attractive. A brief history of love is also written there.
