Street View’s Journey

Naogaon in Google’s Lens
They have entered Naogaon district from the Rajshahi side. It ends-up on Dhaka road, where Bogra and Naogaon district border has started. They only took 360 degree pictures of this path as well as Kusumba Mosque, Balihar Palace, Naogaon town Bypass and Paharpur Vihara. Paharpur Vihara get really deeper views in street view. If you visit this historical place through Google Street View, you’ll feel like you are really there. But two more important places of Naogaon, Dubolhati Rajbari and Patisar Kachhari Bari are out of street view coverage. They have covered more places and streets of larger cities like our neighboring Bogra and Rajshahi district. Although we must feel happy about that, at-least some of our streets and places are in Google Street View.
