Khalishpur Nilkuthi Vaban – খালিশপুর নীলকুঠি ভবন

Khalishpur Nilkuthi Bhaban

Khalishpur Nilkuthi Bhaban, situated on the banks of river Kopotaksh in Maheshpur upazila of Jhenaidah district, is one of the archeological sites. At the beginning of indigo cultivation in the Indian subcontinent, the British East India Company built a two-storey indigo factory building on 14 acres of land at Khalishpur. From 1810 to 1857, this indigo factory was used to oppress the indigo farmers. The peasants, outraged by the British oppression of the indigo farmers, started the indigo rebellion in the subcontinent in 180 AD. However, the other indigo factories were sold by the British but the indigo factory building in Khalishpur could not be sold due to the revolt of the farmers. This indigo factory left by the English was later used by the zamindars as a kachari house.

When the zamindari system was abolished during the partition of India in 1947, the factory was abandoned. After the war of independence, the Department of Archeology of Bangladesh registered the Khalishpur Nilkuthi building as an archeological site. At present Birshreshtha Hamidur Rahman College and Hamidur Rahman Memorial Museum have been set up near Khalishpur Nilkuthi Bhaban and a beautiful mango orchard has been set up on 10 acres of land near Nilkuthi Bhaban.
