Bandarban’s Jetvan Buddha Vihar is a Buddhist temple located in Rowangchhari Upazila. The temple is a newly built architectural landmark, an initiative of the Chattogram Hill Tracts Development Board.

This year, I finally planned a day trip with my family to see the temple.

Jetvan Buddha Vihar is around a 30-minute ride from my house, so my mother and I started early in the morning.

People celebrate several religious festivals here. They gather at the temple during Pavarana Purnima, Buddha Purnima and other Buddhist festivals.

The temple is not limited to Buddhists only. Believers of other religions and races are always welcome at Jetvan Buddha Vihar.
