Most Popular 9 Best Narail Tourist Spots To Visit
1.Fish hunting with a Otter
Goalbari village of Kalora Union in Narail district is particularly famous for fishing in Bangladesh. Even though countrywide Otter has banned this old method of fishing, about 2627 families in Goalbari village continue to employ it.
Otter (Vodor/ভোঁদড়) is an animal heavily addicted to fish. Local fishermen use Otters to hunt fish. Before going fishing, the Otter is fed with fish full of stomachs, and then the nets tied to the boat are thrown into the river and set free.
Otter drives away to fish for food in his natural behavior, and the fish are trapped in the fishermen’s net. After hunting, a part of the fish caught by the fishermen is kept tied for the Otter.
Fishermen in the Narail region, therefore, raise Otters like other domestic animals.
2.Narail Badha Ghat/নড়াইল বাঁধা ঘাট
The traditional Narail Bandhghat or Bandhan Ghat is located on the banks of the Chitra river adjacent to Victoria College, 3 km from Narail city.

The zamindar of Narail built this closed ghat to enjoy shipping and the natural beauty of the river bank. It is known to the locals as Rajbari Ghat.
A camp built on a Doric column is the main feature of the Ghats in Greek architecture. The zamindar’s residence is next to the ghat. Locals spend their afternoons in the Badha Ghats, where residents visit to enjoy their leisure time.
