Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This striking mansion has seen better days, but it's a great example of the historic architecture that once found it's place thoughout Bangladesh. Although you can't "visit" the house, you can wander through the areas where bronze statues are made by the lost wax technique. This is all done by one family for generations. There is a nice shop area with many different bronze offerings which make good souvenirs and gifts. The matriarch proudly takes visitors around explaining the process.

This weekend we went to Dhamrai Metal Crafts Workshop and Showroom to see how the brass metal crafts are made. Very impressive!

Its pity that such a nice art crafts industry is in alarming situation. Mr. Sukanta and his before generation has been trying their level best to keep this unique master art work alive on earth. Sukanta’s depth of knowledge on art, and passions has brought a new era. This jeweler is not living very far from us, neighborhood area of Dhaka, place call Dhamrai in Savar district, which is abot an hour drive from Dhaka. Highly recommended to visit and have an elaborate description from Mr. Sukanta Banik about his work ornamentation. His house factory is well known to the locals, at the end of the Dhamrai Bazar. A cup of lemon tea from his beautiful wife gives any visitor’s an image of Bangladeshi hospitality. Since 2004 I have been visiting this place along with multinational’s and has left hundreds of thousand appreciation at his great work.

We went there from Dhaka on a day trip, learned about the process of the lost wax method, watched metal being poured into shapes (Not happening every day; call ahead to find out.), had lunch in the courtyard of their beautiful old house (Has to be arranged ahead of time.), and took a walk around Dhamrai. Very nice trip but depending on traffic (which is usually mediocre and can get very bad), the drive can get a bit long.

Sukanta and his family as well as the artisans were very keen to show us the process of lost wax technique in making brass figures. They are a fifth generation artisan family. It is great to see how they are keeping the dying art of Bangla alive. Trully a heritage village worth visiting.

The lost wax technique on display here is incredible. The family are very welcoming, and proudly showed us around their home, giving us cups of tea and sweets.

By visiting, you get to see how an object is made from beginning to end. They will show you how they make the moulds by first creating a wax model, then using layers of material to make a cast. The production of the objects themselves is done by melting metal into the cast, letting them cool, and then finishing the brass. Each mould can only be used once, so every item is unique.

The show at the end has amazing array of items, including Hindu and Buddhist items, jewellery, plates, cups and bowls and more. Once you've seen the process that goes into each object, it's amazing to stand in the shop. There's no pressure to buy anything. We did, and received a complimentary DVD about the art. Given the handcrafted nature of the pieces, the prices are very reasonable. It's a great, genuine souvenir to take home.

I went there with my family on a day tour. It was a wonderful experience. The owner is very curtious, amicable and friendly. This is a family run business and they value relationships! Love their metal crafts. You can have a detailed experience of how the make the crafts and you can choose from a wide range of collections. Worth visiting.
Around 35/40 kms of North of Dhaka. You can combined National Martyer Monument and Jahangirnagar University together. Still you need 6-7hrs in total in any weekends.

If you haven't been there just go! I am a fan. Some amazing work. Meta crafting is a lost art yet Sukanto and family is still holding onto it. I must visit and go and get some of this art before it disappears from this earth.

A fascinating place to visit for an hour or so. Plenty to learn and to keep you entertained.
Learn how the "lost wax" method of brass casting really works. See the local artisans at work like they did 100 years ago.
A very good diversion and worth the ride as even the journey out of Dhaka is pleasant.
