The Story Of Preserving Heritage
This is the last wooden boat of Bangladesh. Traditionally it is called Malar. Its design date back 3000 years old! This boat is 28 meters long under bamboo scaffolding- to turn a Bengali wooden boat, bamboo scaffolding is the only method available. To overhaul this boat it required 80 people. This is why this kind of boat is virtually extinct nowadays.

هذا آخر قاربٍ خشبي في بنجلاديش. يسمى هذا القاب مالار ويعودُ تصميمه إلى 3000 عام! ويبلغ طوله 28 متراً كما أنّه مصنوعٌ من سقالات الخيزران. تطلّب ترميم هذا القارب أكثر من 80 شخصاً. ولهذا السبب، انقرض هذا النوع من القوارب في أيامنا.
